Summary

In Tulsa, Oklahoma, a tiny youth center called OpenArms Youth Project is squeezed in between two of the city's two thousand churches. The center welcomes young LGBT kids between thirteen and nineteen, who have decided to come out in a very religious society. But the prize for being yourself is high - and you end up becoming a MISFIT. The three main characters: Larissa, Benny and "D" all go to the center, where they find love and support to confront the daily drama they are facing. While the general public opinion towards gays in the USA is slowly changing, this coming-of-age story closely follows the three young protagonists as they struggle to achieve a sense of self in a community that still widely condemns homosexuality.
