Indie Landrum is a young advocate from San Diego, and one of our 2016 True Fellows. He’s also totally awesome! Indie wrote about his experience at our True Fellowship training retreat for the California Coalition for Youth website.

Last year I spoke on the first youth panel at the National Alliance to End Homelessness conference. It was the first time I’d been ask to speak about my thoughts and feelings about homelessness instead on my personal experiences. It was very empowering, I felt like I wasn’t just a tokenized homeless queer transgender kid. I felt like I was being respected as a professional but also as a young person whose experiences makes them an expert. After this I knew I wanted to get more involved with the True Colors Fund.
