Surveying LGBTQ Youth In Foster Care: Lessons From Los Angeles The objective of this report is to provide a methodology resource for those interested in learning more about LGBTQ youth in foster care in order to better meet their needs. This report will be useful to researchers interested in conducting traditional research as well as foster care systems who are adding sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression measures to their current internal research and evaluation efforts or administrative records. We describe and assess the methodology used in a Los Angeles County study which surveyed youth in foster care about their sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, other demographic characteristics, and experiences in foster care. We provide our survey instrument and recommended questions, summarize and assess our methodology in designing and conducting the survey, and review lessons that we drew from our experience. We hope this report will encourage further research on youth in foster care in general and LGBTQ youth in particular.
