TRUE COLORS FUND TAKING NOMINATIONS FOR THE 40 OF THE 40 LIST
The 40 of the 40 list provides a platform for the 40% of youth experiencing homelessness who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning, age 18-24. Youth are the experts of their own truths, and we aim to honor their voices and their stories.
