Check It

Film Review: Check It at the Human Rights Art and Film Festival

Most of the members of Check It are estranged from their families or have otherwise disadvantageous home lives. A lot of them are homeless and many of them turn to prostitution in order to pay rent, eat or just survive. But what else are they supposed to do? When they get kicked out of their homes as young teenagers simply for being different and/or kicked out of school at an even younger age because of perceived behavioral problems, what other recourse do these undereducated black LGBT teenagers have?
