Five friends—Quinn, Sarai, Zel, Mickey, and Cohen—scramble to save their high school’s gay-straight alliance following their principal’s orders to diversify the club by “recruiting” straight students. There’s Quinn, the tough but tender leader of GSA. Sarai, their lovable lesbian best friend. Zel— the voice of reason. Mickey, the walking, talking Claire's store. And Cohen— all flair, stoicism, and the communist manifesto.
To achieve this quixotic aim of straight-washing their GSA, each becomes the “gay best friend” of select peers while facing the highs and lows being queer in high school. Third Charm, a Seattle-based youth production company, created this first season of HETERO, and the result crackles with energy.
