UCLA report finds LBQ women overrepresented in foster care, carceral systems

Lesbian and bisexual girls and women, especially from Black and American Indian populations, are overrepresented in the foster care and carceral systems, UCLA researchers said.
The Williams Institute at the School of Law released a report in April that found that the proportion of lesbian, bisexual and queer girls and women is 3% higher in the foster care system, 24% higher in the juvenile detention system and 30% higher in the prison system than in the general population.
