At at the age of sixteen, KRYSTAL was pushed out of her home by a family who rejected her sexual orientation. Krystal moved around a lot after that. First it was Kansas City, then Los Angeles, then Phoenix then Las Vegas, then back to Kansas City, and then finally New York City. It was there, on Christopher Street, that Krystal finally found the kind of family that would support her for who she was and not who people hoped her to be.

"We are totally transfixed by Pier Kids: The Life."
"Pier Kids is already proving to be as raw as an open wound, a film that is at once provocative as it is necessary."
"Here are the descendants of the people in Paris is Burning, depicted by someone who's lived the madness and can relate, first-hand, why this is an important New York story and an important American story."
— Jennie Livingston, director of PARIS IS BURNING
"Pier Kids is an important documentary that tells the stories of the people who are often voiceless."
