Tru, a 16-year-old high school student from San Francisco, is uprooted from her gay-friendly home by her lesbian moms and moved away; not only from San Fran but also from her gay dads; to a new, decidedly more conservative neighborhood in suburban Southern California. Her non-traditional family makes her a bit of an outsider; until high school football hero and BMOC Lodell takes a liking to her. However, Lo is actually gay and closeted. And in Tru he finds a friend with whom he can really be himself, though still afraid to do the same with his mom, grandmother and closest pals. Tru reluctantly agrees to cover for Lo as his girlfriend. But, when Tru sees and hears the closed-minded comments about homosexuality from her new group of “friends,” she takes a bold step: Together with openly gay student Walter she lays the groundwork to start a Gay-Straight Alliance club at her new school. Through the GSA, she meets Trevor, a smart and charming young man; raised by his gay uncle Daniel; with whom she becomes smitten. Torn between her commitment to her best friend, and her attraction to and connection with Trevor, Tru must look into her heart, take what she has learned from her close-knit family about love, friendship, honesty and trust, and sort it out…all without hurting someone; possibly herself; in the process.
