PIER KIDS: THE LIFE follows the director over the course of three years as he films three gay and transgender youth of color who have become, like the director once was, homeless on the same street the Gay Rights Movement began so long ago.


The film has been featured in The Fader, VICE, ABC News, The Huffington Post (two and three times), Buzzfeed, OUT Magazine, Queerty, Slate and on GLAAD’s website.
