A Road to Home2016. USA. 93 min.
Director: Cal Skaggs
This documentary follows the journeys of six LGBT homeless young people over 18 months. Their lives typify the experience of the 300,000 homeless youth on American streets every night, 40% of them LGBT. A Road to Home shows how its characters land in the streets of NYC, learn to survive there, and struggle to find shelter and a healing sense of direction. In the course of their journeys, four of them receive aid from the Ali Forney Center, a program devoted solely to homeless LGBT youth. The struggle of its founder Carl Siciliano to keep its programs alive mirrors the journeys of the kids themselves.
