Caught up in the precariousness of survival and self-preservation, homeless queer and trans youth of colour hang out at Christopher Street Pier, forging their own chosen family.

Genuine and charming, these eloquent youth must contend with overwhelming amounts of homophobia and abuse. Director Elegance Bratton’s still-hopeful portrait exposes a raw side of New York City many often choose to ignore.
 

'(I)mpactful and succeeds in highlighting its central topic: the undervalued and underprivileged lives of the LGBT homeless community.' - Matthew Keeley, The Wee Review

'By showing viewers Krystal, Casper and Desean’s lives…Bratton rejoices in their strength and resilience but also shows viewers how the system needs to change.' ****- Roxy Simons, View Of Arts
