‘Homelessness is a Queer Experience.’: Utopianism and Mutual Aid as Survival Strategies for Trans People Experiencing Homelessness

There is a significantly increased risk of homelessness among trans people, yet services poorly meet their needs. This article explores how community support, anchored in queer praxis and concrete utopian thinking helps trans people to survive homelessness.

The findings serve to:

  • Highlight the importance of showing how shared precarity produces practices of care
  • Offer strategies to address inequitable service failures
  • Demonstrate the relevance of queer theoretical approaches to housing justice
