Out in the Cold

Advocates for the “profamily” religious right should be required to view Eric Criswell and Martin Bedogne's 2001 video documentary on homeless gay kids. Many of the subjects were expelled from their homes by Christian parents: according to one man, his father told him, “I hope you get AIDS and die,” and he was saved from suicide only when his grandmother took him in, ignoring the counsel of her minister. The video is stylistically bland, and its narrator sounds like a refugee from a bad educational film, but the details are compelling (one interviewee explains how to minimize the risk of getting raped while sleeping on the street). 52 min.
