Thu, 24 Apr 2014

Late City Edition producer Sam Lutzker sat down with Elegance Bratton, director of the  upcoming documentary, Pier Kids: The Life. Through the true stories of three young people, as well as that of the director himself, this documentary examines the lives of the more than four thousand homeless gay and trans youth of color who congregate around Christopher street and the nearby piers. Pushed out of their homes because of their sexualities, these young social refugees find community on the very streets where the Stonewall riots took place more than forty years ago.
