Director Hopes to Shine a Light on Struggles of Homeless LGBT Kids in NYC

(DNAINFO) Danielle Tcholakian | October 29, 2015 — The presence of homeless LGBT youth in Greenwich Village is no secret.

Between services offered by St. Luke’s in the Fields and The Door in Hudson Square, the Village is one of the city’s more welcoming neighborhoods for the particularly vulnerable population.But there’s little frank discussion of their lived experience.

Director Cati Gonzalez wants to change that with her feature-length film “Ekaj,” which tells the fictional story of a young gay runaway.
