On Sunday, a coalition of Richmond nonprofits publicly launched an initiative to address homelessness for LGBTQ youth. WCVE's Catherine Komp reports.
More than a third of youth experiencing homelessness in Richmond identify as LGBTQ, according to research by Advocates for Richmond Youth. One of them was Justice Valentine, who spent a year living in a car.
Justice Valentine: It was terrible. Valentine is transgender, and didn’t have many options in the gender-segregated shelter system.
