Reflections on New National Data on LGBT/GNCT Youth in the Justice System (2017)

The purpose of this paper is to report new national data on the over-representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, questioning, gender nonconforming, and transgender youth in the juvenile justice system and to provide recommendations for key justice stakeholders on how to best serve these youths (p. 27). The report abbreviates lesbian, gay, bisexual, questioning, gender non-conforming and transgender as LGBTQ/GNCT.
