In the United States, homosexual students face an increased rate of hardships that contribute to becoming homeless more often than their heterosexual counterparts which starts their disadvantages in society. These disadvantages include the lack of access to education, counseling, and of course a set home. LGBTQ students are at higher suicide rates, dropout rates, and less successful compared to heterosexuals which is all compared with the fact that they were homeless at one point in their life. The best way to battle this stigma against homosexuals would be to help spread awareness of the situation and from there begin to set up ways to decrease the percentage because when you are aware of something you can begin to create solutions.
