|Title:||The experiences of being a young LGBTIQ and homeless in Australia: Re-thinking policy and practice|

|Abstract:||Drawing on the perspectives of young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer (LGBTIQ) people who have experienced homelessness across metropolitan Adelaide and Sydney, Australia, the article outlines many of the challenges and barriers that confronted them. We argue that traditional views in policy and practice that treat homelessness as a homogeneous category are detrimental to this young cohort. With more young people identifying as LGBTIQ, a greater number of them are seeking services, support and housing assistance. Yet, as we highlight, this has had the effect of a shortage of suitable and safe accommodation and support to assist young LGBTIQ people. This shortfall further entrenches marginalisation and exclusion for this young group.|
