Documentary: Queer Youth
LOST IN THE CROWD
Directed by Susi Graf
2010| USA | 61 mins
RATINGS: PG – Not Suitable for Children
Following a group of transgendered youths living rough in the streets of New York City, shot over six years, this ground breaking documentary reveals not only the many trials they must face in their fight to survive in a society that is hostile to their very existence but also the dreams and desires that keep them going in the face of such harsh reality. Behind the hustle and bustle of New York City’s streets, there is a world that few care to see and even less dare to enter, for the life of a homeless person is filled with constant danger, especially for those who are transgendered. LOST IN THE CROWD explores both the mysterious allure and the harsh reality of transgendered homeless youth living on the streets of New York City. Far away from sheltered lives there exists a subculture where young transgendered outcasts celebrate a lifestyle creating their own existences and families.

Fairy Tales Presentation Society
Fairytales Presentation Society is a not-for-profit, charitable organization located in Calgary, Alberta that focuses on showcasing local and national queer artists. As our name suggests, and bylaws state; we showcase and celebrate queer artists of all artistic mediums including but not limited to film. Our artistic endeavors strive to provide a safe and respectful venue for members of all communities to celebrate queer culture. While the term queer often refers to people who are LGBTTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit and questioning), Fairytales understands queer to also include those who subscribe to culturally, politically, artistically, and otherwise alternative and innovative ways of contributing to society. We see queer as a vista, a way of looking at the world differently- with an eye towards diversity, criticality and inclusion.
