the forgotten kids

 

The Forgotten Kids is a documentary film currently in development. 


Of the estimated 5,700 homeless youth in San Francisco, nearly one in three identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender -- a shockingly high percentage relative to percentage of the general population who identify as LGBT (shown to be fewer than 10%).


This film aims to shed light on the pervasive phenomenon of homeless queer youth in urban areas and the social ills associated with it. 


To develop this project, Scott is currently teaching weekly video workshops for homeless / marginally-housed queer and trans youth at Larkin Street Youth Services and LYRIC in San Francisco.
