On Saturday, November 11, at 2 p.m., our Cinema will premiere the new documentary "Verstoten," organized by Stichting Cine Inclusief and Stichting Maruf. This documentary, directed by Claire Slingerland, sheds light on the harrowing situation of homeless rainbow youth in the Netherlands, a topic that has received too little attention to date. Who are these young people? What impact does this have on their lives and where do they end up?

According to a study by Movisie, there are between 900 and 2,000 homeless rainbow youth in the Netherlands. These youth face a range of challenges, ranging from an unlivable home situation to being thrown out on the street without any compassion after coming out of the closet.

Put on the streets by parents
The documentary explores who these young people are, the impact it has on their lives and where they end up. 'Outcast' tells the candid story of two young people who share how they ended up on the streets and the challenges they endured. They share personal experiences about their life on the streets, the dangers they face and their experiences with shelters. The threat of alcohol, drugs and prostitution remains a constant presence in the lives of these young people.

Afterword by Maruf
