Chosen Family: Tyler Oakley Explores LGBTQ Youth Homelessness

Tyler Oakley presents Chosen Family - Stories of Queer Resilience

YouTuber Tyler Oakley took time to examine just how homelessness affects young LGBTs in a new episode of his online series, Chosen Family.

From Tyler:

When thinking of stories to explore for this season of Chosen Family, a big queer experience I realized I didn’t know much about, was LGBTQ+ youth homelessness.

I visited the Los Angeles LGBT Center in Hollywood for a tour of the Center & to meet with a group of young LGBTQ+ people who have experienced homelessness to hear their stories firsthand. I also got to meet Alexandra Grey, who before becoming a successful actress and singer, was homeless and got help from the Center.
