Using homeless LGBTQ youth as an example, this presentation addresses the need for information professionals to work together with those we identify as different from ourselves to create shared and mutual understanding and review some of the barriers to this understanding, in order to look closely at the flow of information, what impedes that flow, and how to remove that impediment, so the information can be universally accessed.
