THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Mia Tu Mutch, a trans woman, spent two yearsof her youth homeless, mostly without reliable shelter — a preference over living with her parents’ religious reparative therapy- thinking, bullying classmates and constant suicide thoughts.

Mia did however, unlike most kids of that age, survive street life. She now has a job serving the LGBT community, an apartment and sits on the San Francisco Youth Commission. She has taken on the task of fixing LGBT youth homelessness problems — the issues that troubled her own youth. Bringing about awareness and reclaiming safe spaces for trans people and LGBT youth is what Mia is about today — a role model for the 40% of homeless youth that are LGBT.
