THE INFAMOUS T - At age 18, after years of sleeping in homeless shelters and couch-surfing (and voguing and partying), Jonathon is ready to make the transition to a new house and family. The Minneapolis GLBT Host Home Program matches him up with host parents Alex and Mike and their 7-year-old daughter, but Jonathon finds himself in a middle-class neighborhood where he's beset by culture-clash. Blaming everything from veggie burgers to school bullying, Jonathon is on the verge of losing it all, until his chosen family of friends and his Infamous T dance buddies intervene. They dare him to get it together and change his act before it's too late.
