‘Outside’ investigates why young trans people are so vulnerable to becoming homeless and understand what the barriers are to safe accommodation.

It follows the story of Shea Freedom, a trans musician from Los Angeles who lived in 28 different foster placements and emancipated into homelessness at a young age. He now travels around to advocate for LGBTQ+ youth and foster youth, using music as a platform to spread the message of equality, inclusion and acceptance.

I was lucky enough to catch Shea on his UK tour at Bristol Pride and visit a LGBT youth group in Southampton with him to share his experiences with the group.
