The Throwaways

When newly out teen Olivia loses her family, her home, and her future in one fell swoop, she's taken in by a resilient group of lesbian misfits.


Published:

Things can only get better. Right?  Despite the recent repeal of DADT and President Obama's support of gay marriage, gay kids are still being bullied, harassed, and thrown out of their homes because of their sexuality.  The Throwaways follows straight-A, straight-laced, and anything but straight Olivia on her quest to find a safe place to be herself.

The Throwaways showcases the still tenuous nature of LGBT acceptance in the US as well as the comedy and comfort to be found in new friends and allies.
