Marsha’s House: Life As A LGBTQ Homeless Youth

Welcome to Marsha’s House, a homeless shelter for LGBTQ young adults. This is where we meet Romaine Leslie as we follow his journey through the shelter system.

The name Marsha’s House comes from prominent trans-activist Marsha P. Johnson whose legacy includes providing emergency housing to homeless LGBT youth.
