Report Addresses LGBTQ Youth Health, Substance Use, and Treatment Experiences

March 2, 2016

The Urban Institute has published “Access to Safety: Health Outcomes, Substance Use and Abuse, and Service Provision for LGBTQ Youth, YMSM, and YWSW Who Engage in Survival Sex.” The OJJDP-funded report focuses on youth who engage in survival sex and are self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ); young men who have sex with men (YMSM); and young women who have sex with women (YWSW). The report describes their health issues, substance use, and treatment service experiences. This is the third and final report in a series from a study on LGBTQ youth, YMSM, and YWSW who engage in survival sex in New York City.
