Description

As vulnerable gay and transgender youth, they’ve been shot, stabbed, and raped. These 14-22 year old gang members all have rap sheets riddled with assault, armed robbery, and drug dealing charges. Led by an ex-convict named Mo, members of the Check It gang break the cycle of poverty and violence by creating their own clothing label, putting on fashion shows, and working stints as runway models.
