Choose a day where you’re not feeling particularly well, maybe you’re sad, maybe you’re angry. I want you to set up your tripod and take a photo, head and shoulders portrait, possibly in natural light, looking straight at the camera.
Then I want you to go away and make yourself feel good, make yourself orgasm, what you do or if you choose to involve a partner to make this happen doesn’t matter, what’s important is that you come back to the camera straight after and take another shot - in the same position, same light, etc.
Pier Kids: The Life examines the legacy of Stonewall and the Gay Rights Movement it ignites by following the lives of DeSean, Krystal, and Casper, three gay and transgender youth of color who have become homeless on the same street the riots took place more than forty years ago. Together, these three stories weave a complex narrative of love, family, exploitation, beauty, and hope. But it is more than a story of three. It is the story of thousands.
"Here are the descendants of the people in Paris is Burning, depicted by someone who’s lived the madness and can relate, first-hand, why this is an important New York story and an important American story. Join the community of people making this film a reality!" - Jennie Livingston, director of Paris is Burning
As the film enters post-production, we have to edit down over two hundred hours of footage into a feature-length film, color balance the footage, sound mix it, and so much more.
We need your help. Please consider donating to our Kickstarter if you can and/or reblogging to signal boost!
