Pier Kids begins with the necessary and frank reminder: “In the wake of the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the world cheered the advancement of white queers and ignored the fates of queer people of color.” The documentary follows director Elegance Bratton 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 in New York City where the Gay Rights Movement began so long ago. Contains mature content.
