Hollywood’s Finest series on pregnancy and homelessness

Mckenzie Trahan has been on the streets of Hollywood off and on since she was 13 years old. At 22, she was seven months pregnant and living in a tent in the dirt above the 101 freeway.

“Stitches,” to her friends — or as her head tattoo put it, one of “Hollywood’s Finest” — would struggle to find and keep a home to raise her baby. In doing so, she would have to leave behind her life on the streets and the friends who had sustained her through the years she had survived with her wits and fists as one of LA’s many thousands of homeless people.

In 2018, reporter Gale Holland, photographer Christina House and videographer Claire Hannah Collins set out to tell the stories of Mckenzie; her mother, Cynthia “Cat” Trahan; and her case manager Leslie Kerr. Join them on their journey.
