Description American Vagabond is a cinematic feature documentary about gay youth living without a home in the shadows of a promised city. It's a story about a modern Western society in which homosexuality is still so demonized in some communities that some parents are ready to abandon their children over it. One out of every four young people who are coming out to their parents is kicked out of the house. 20 to 40 percent of homeless youth are estimated to belong to sexual minorities in the United States.

    Da bekommt ein heranwachsender junger Mann drei Jahre Knast, weil er es mit einen 16 jährigen getrieben hat, der sich als 18 jähriger ausgegeben hat. Und einen lebenslangen Eintrag ins Strafregister als Sexualstraftäter. Kein Wunder, wenn die Knäste da so voll sind. Sehr informativ fand ich den Film ansonsten eher nicht.
