Meeting the needs of LGBTIQ+ people who are homeless

Brodie Fraser – PhD Candidate

Brodie’s research explores how people who identify as LGBTIQ+ experience homelessness, and what they require from service providers in order to have their needs met. Her PhD combines semi-structured interviews and participatory video from LGBTIQ+ people who are or have been homeless with Rapid Assessment Process interviews from service providers. This data will be combined to create a framework about how to best meet the needs of LGBTIQ+ people who experience homelessness.
