NYC-based activist and social worker Ryan Berg presents No House to Call My Home: Love, Family, and Other Transgressions, a look into the lives of LGBT teens entrenched in what Berg describes as a “deeply flawed” foster care system. During his time here in New York, Berg worked with young people who have battled extreme poverty, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and years of abandonment and abuse.

Berg will be joined by Gabriel Matthews, who has worked closely with organizations like Queers for Economic Justice and volunteered at D.R.E.A.M. Life, Inc., and was at one time been homeless and grew up in the NYC foster care system.
