Pier Kids: The Life is a documentary film about the Black street culture which thrives on Christopher Street and its piers

At the age of sixteen, I was pushed out of my mother’s home because of my sexual orientation and was subsequently forced to live on the streets of New York. I was lucky though. On my first night, I happened upon a group of black gay men and I followed them to the piers at the edge of the West Village. Little did I know that I had found my spiritual home.

Today, white upper-class families make the West Village their home; but as day turns to night, Christopher Street and its adjacent piers also become home to a transient yet vibrant street community known as the Pier Kids. Forming a significant yet invisible network, the Pier Kids are a queer and transgender community of predominately Black and Latino descent representing nearly four thousand of New York City’s sixteen thousand registered homeless youth. Left to wander and with few economic opportunities, the lives of these social refugees are beset with limited and harrowing options as money and food are everyday struggles. Through it all – or, perhaps, because of it all – hope still exists in the shadows of their neglect and abandonment.

Pier Kids: The Life follows the stories of three young people:

DeSean has been homeless for the past four years but considers the piers his “playground, office, [and] living room”;

Krystal arrived in the West Village after she spent years searching for a place she could finally be herself—a beautiful black transgender woman;

and Casper made Christopher Street his home away from home and in doing so found a safe haven away from the homophobic glare of his black community’s scornful gaze.

Together, these three people weave a surprisingly complex story of love, family, exploitation, and hope. But it’s more than the story of three. It’s the story of thousands.

Funding ends 2/12/13.

The creators of Pier Kids canceled their original fundraiser after they only raised around $1000 of their $30,000 goal. I know why most of you aren’t paying attention to this: it’s a movie about queer and trans people of color, most of whom are homeless, but this only got 100 notes in almost a year.

Seriously. What the fuck? Does it really take a bunch of mainstream people and sites to pick this up before you pay attention? Why can’t something like this, made by us about us, get more attention from us??

“GHE20 GOTH1K is extremely political. It’s not about expensive clothes…. She’s a parasite—that’s what pop stars are these days.”

blackfemdomdotcom replied to your post: I stan M.I.A. but I reall…

ia i love her but sometimes when she talks abt black ppl i’m like… like when she mentions the masta ace reference and how she doesn’t think “black boy turn yr shit down” is representative of the culture now. i want to ask “in regards to what?”

omg when did she say that?!!?!?!?! that’s just obtuse for no reason and she knows too much about black people to say shit like that. she’s unacceptable when she starts talking about race…

The whole idea of “brown girl, turn your shit down, go back to India…” and all that. Was that something that really flared up after the Superbowl? Were you hearing that a lot after all the controversy with the halftime show? 
More than before? Hmmm.. You know, it’s a reference to “Born to Roll,” Masta Ace. He said “Black Boy, black boy, turn that shit down.’ And I felt like in 2013, that was no longer the case. Me and Hit-Boy talked about that. I was, like, an “other.” [con’t]

yeah there’s plenty of shit she’s done that makes go “but why tho” b/c i can’t understand how someone so smart and generally on point has such cognitive blindspots. she’s still sf important 2 me but… :/
