Fenced OUT is a youth-inspired, produced and directed video created in collaboration between FIERCE, Paper Tiger Television and The Neutral Zone.
Fenced OUT documents the struggle of LGBTSTQ youth of color to save the Christopher Street pier and the West Village from re-development and gentrification. While researching the history of the pier, FIERCE members discovered past generations of queer peoples' fight for use of public spaces at Christopher Street and the piers. We have continued to use the documentary as a public education tool to raise awareness about the increasing displacement, violence, and criminalization experienced by LGBTSTQ youth of color. To date we have reached over 3,000 people in New York City and nationwide.
