Homeless women and homeless LGBTQ+

I am going to amend my last homeless issues post to add these in, but also thought I’d be negating my responsibility to highlight the fact that I’d missed them out, and that those who’d already seen that post may not go back and get the opportunity to see these as well.

Fucking typical male.

While writing out my #HomelessIssues post, I’ve realised I totally omitted issues that directly affect homeless women, such as:

#PeriodPoverty, where sanitary products are unavailable to homeless women;

#HomelessSexualAbuse, #HomelessSexualHarassment, and #HomelessRape, where homeless women are often vulnerable to attack and find it difficult or impossible to get justice and adequate care and safeguarding;

#HomelessBirthControl, where homeless women find it hard to access contraception, and where they are even vilified for having the audacity to have a sex life whilst homeless.

#HomelessLGBTQ people also face difficult issues, where they can’t access care, support, security and justice, especially when facing attacks primarily focused on their identity and taken advantage of because of their homelessness.

These omissions are totally my fault and my problem. Apologies.

Call them out when you see them ❤️
