Every now and then when I walk down Hollywood Blvd I run into someone who remembers me when I was homeless on the streets of Hollywood. Before I could say more than a few words to Sebastian, he recognized me as “Lizard Man”, which was a name street folks and LAPD gave me for selling photos of my iguana to tourists in front of the Chinese Theater.

John is sleeping outside in Philadelphia. He tired shelters, but someone stabbed John trying to steal his boots, so he feels safer sleeping on the streets, even though the overnight windchill is reported to be a deadly -11° or worse.

Seattle is the one city that I am aware of that embraces tent communities and incorporates the model into their homeless services. Although tent encampments are not the best solution, when housing and shelter beds are not available, adding tent cities to the continuum is a smart move.

The point of this movie is to create a conversation on people experiencing homelessness and solutions to help them. At the end of this post I will list cities, stations and times. If you live in one of those communities and are a make-things-happen type person, it would be awesome if you (or a team) would start promoting the PBS airing and make some kind of an event happen.
