LGBTQ+ Issues with Rental Housing

In honor of Pride Month, join SCPL and Tenant Sanctuary for a special group discussion about LGBTQ+ issues in housing. This is an informal public conversation to heighten attention on issues especially affecting LGBTQ+ tenants such as homelessness, discrimination, privacy, and other issues. Learn what rights you have as a renter, get your questions answered, and sign up for a one-on-one conversation with a lawyer.

Led by a tenant lawyer, the talk will be followed by Q&A

“LGBT people are more likely than non-LGBT people to be poor, to be renters, to have unstable housing, and to be homeless. Furthermore, LGBT elders are more likely to live alone than non-LGBT elders; LGBTQ youth have high rates of homelessness related, for many, to rejection from their families; and discrimination against LGBT adults in housing and homeless shelters is widespread.”
- UCLA School of Law (Williams Institute 2020)
