Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) youth experience trauma at higher rates than their straight peers. Common traumas experienced by these youth include bullying, harassment, traumatic loss, intimate partner violence, and physical and sexual abuse, as well as traumatic forms of societal stigma, bias and rejection. Historically, professionals have failed to recognize and meet the needs of traumatized LGBTQ youth, leading to poor engagement, ineffective treatment and in some cases, perpetuating the youth’s traumatic experiences. To ensure that these youth receive the care they deserve, providers need resources to create safe spaces and familiarize themselves with the issues facing traumatized LGBTQ youth.
