The Throwaways

7 Episodes

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. Things can only get better. Right?
Despite the repeal of DADT and the recent Supreme Court decision on marriage equality, LGBT 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. This series showcases the still tenuous nature of LGBT acceptance in America, as well as the comedy and comfort to be found in new friends and allies.
