A University of Alberta study found that lesbian, gay and bisexual youth are overrepresented in the homeless youth population. Nikki Webb became homeless at 15, according to CBC. "I came out as bisexual and my parents were just unable to handle it," said Nikki Webb, 25. "That's how I ended up homeless." Startling numbers suggest a third of the homeless young people in Edmonton are gay or lesbian. The study estimates 25 to 40 per cent of homeless youth identify themselves as lesbian or gay. In the general population that number is only five to 10 per cent. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
