Meet Toby, Loch, and the youth from Larkin Street Youth Services in San Francisco. In Episode 1 of Larkin Street Stories they discuss their approach to supporting and accepting LGBT youth who are homeless. At the Larkin Street Drop-In Center, youth talk about how family rejection of their LGBTQ identity led them to leave home. Loch talks about the importance of being present for a client, and Toby reflects on her approach to helping youth to see their own strengths and resources. After work, Loch explains the LGBTQI2-S acronym to his girlfriend.
