In this special Pride Month episode, we speak to Michael Sanders, Professor of Public Policy at King’s College London and one of the authors of the Centre for Homelessness Impact’s report on Sexuality, Gender Identity and Homelessness. We talk to Michael about the lack of data surrounding LGBTQ+ people who experience homelessness, the challenges of collecting that data, and measures that can be taken to improve the situation.
