Summary
Imagine yourself 18 years old wandering city streets without a place to go to sleep or eat or shelter from the cold. Imagine you're homeless because your parents kicked you out when they discovered you are gay or transgender...This is the subject of A Road to Home, which follows 6 LGBT youth through New York City as they learn to survive in the streets, then struggle to find beds, jobs, and some sense of purpose and direction for their lives. Four have grown up in poverty, two not. Five are people of color, one not. All have been rejected. Their lives typify the experience of the 500,000 homeless youth on American streets every night, 40% of them LGBT...In the course of their journeys, four of the characters in A Road to Home get aid from the Ali Forney Center, a program devoted solely to homeless LGBTQ youth. The struggle of its founder Carl Siciliano to keep its programs alive mirrors the journeys of the kids themselves. What the film reveals is not only the dangers, the fears, the lonely anxiety of being homeless, but also the resulting wounds to the heart that must be healed. The 6 characters in this film are determined that their current traumas will not define them for the rest of their lives...Reviews:.."Important! The film about homeless LGBTQ youth that we needed"-Daniela Costa, AfterEllen.. "We see not only the dangers of being homeless but also the fears, the loneliness and the anxiety of being homeless. We become very aware of the broken hearts that these brave people have to deal with."-AmosLassen.com.."Even though these homeless teens seem to have hit rock bottom, the film showcases their resilience and dreams for the future."-Christiana Lilly, South Florida Gay News..Festivals/Prizes:..Best Documentary, Portsmouth International Film Festival.Best Directing in a Documentary.
