There are an estimated 1.6-2.8 million homeless youth in the United States, up to 40% identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. IN THE LIFE examines the plight of LGBT youth experiencing homelessness.
Invisible: Diaries of New York’s Homeless Youth
In this mini-documentary film, five homeless youth reveal the true stories of how they became homeless and what they are doing to transform their lives. Each youth reveals a different side of homelessness—Dorian is an AIDS orphan, Aaron was incarcerated and Eleet became homeless after openly identifying as a transgender female.
A discussion will follow the films, with light refreshments available.
