Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 1.00.33 PM

Last month, we previewed Pier Kids: The Life, the Kickstarter-funded documentary centered on the struggles of LGBT homeless youth of color in New York City.

In preparation for the launching of the Kickstarter campaign on November 1st, a new teaser trailer has been released. Here is the video's description:

Pier Kids: The Life examines the legacy of Stonewall and the Gay Rights Movement it ignited by following the lives of DeSean, Krystal, and Casper, three gay and transgender youth of color who, after being pushed out of their home because of their sexuality, have become homeless on the same street the riots took place more than forty years ago.

Nearly 40 percent of homeless youth are LGBT, according to a report conducted last year.

Watch the teaser trailer, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. What has being "of color" (how incredibly dated) got to do with it?

  2. It has everything to do with it! Are you serious? There no real forum given to the LGBT kids of color. Look at the majority of your gay oriented websites and magazines, They don't promote anything remotely of color unless it's of a sexual nature. Every other minority group is so caught up into trying to "assimilate" into the Caucasian male stereotype that it makes them look pathetic at times.

  3. If I had the money I would build a place for these kids to go. They are woefully ignored by the mainstream gay community. I mean, only two comments on this story? The silence is deafening.
