System Failure: How We Are Failing LGBT Youth

The June 26th #MacroSW chat, System Failure: How We Are Failing LGBT Youth, was a great success. The chat covered the unmet needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth in the social welfare system. You can read the transcript here.

These are the resources I used to put the chat together. They are included in the transcript but I wanted to make it easier for people to access.
