3.07 “Vanessa Alone”


When we last saw Vanessa, all the colour in her life has drained away and she chose to leave home. She hits the streets without a plan. Toronto is a big place, a place big enough to disappear, and be alone – if that’s what she chooses.

This is the first episode of Vanessa’s Story, the spin-off of Out With Dad shot in secret while filming the rest of season three. Vanessa’s Story episodes run in parallel to Out With Dad‘s episodes.

  3. Where are the subtitles in Portuguese? I’m trying to watch in Spanish, but do not understand much.
    wasn’t put subtitles in Portuguese until today, even knowing the webseries has many Brazilian fans :/

  4. Awesome series! Seriously, people like us do need support and people like you guys give it in a such effective way. Thanks a lot for your efforts!

    BTW you definitely should produce a soundtrack (score), because the music is just amazing. I would be glad to buy a couple of Adrian’s tracks, so I can enjoy the music and give a little support to your cool project as well!

  8. Hey! I don’t think it’s fair that people in France have to wait longer than others to watch the new episodes, especially if our public TV is funding the show ! That said, I really like the show so keep up the good work !

    • For those of you in France or any other country where these latest episodes are not available…..try the onion route (TOR). Go to TOR’s website, read up on it, then go to youtube and find out how to download and use it. You can then access these episodes. The web will recognize your pc as originating from another country. Once you’re set up and know what’s going on, it’s actually quite quick and easy. Good luck!

  18. Hi, first of all thank you for the amazing work you do on this webserie which is my best favourite ever. But could you tell us, when will be released the YT version ? Because I can’t watch it due to “geographical restrictions”. I’m so excited to know about Vanessa’s future and this is very frustrating to be honest haha. Thanks in advance for the answer, I’m sending virtual hugs to all the team there in Toronto, from France XX

    • Actually, we’ve had to block the episodes in France because of our deal with France Television. They will host the episodes for us in the near future. Sorry to ask you to wait!

  21. I can’t wait to see more of this, especially since now there’s the problem with biphobia to deal with.
    Great job so far at giving this series its own tone.

  24. Great episode and I really liked the biphobia I’ve been told for years that I’m just gay or I’ll figure out what I actually am soon enough and I’ve never related so much to a character than I do with Vanessa it’s really validating seeing this show just don’t hurt poor Vanessa any more kay

  25. I especially like that you are representing bi-erasure. I hope you will show it for the bs that it is. My blood boils at people who presume to tell you who you are.

  26. Great start to 3.2. I just really hope the suicide hotline poster scene isn’t foreshadowing.

    Reply
  27. Thanks to OWD i’ve been able to be honest with myself and my friends. I finally came out to my school and feel confident about who i am, despite my family doesn’t know yet….i hope i can tell them soon. Love you all guys! You changed my life!

  29. I really want to say thank you to everyone involved with “Out With Dad”. This show helped me a lot through high school and I really related to Vanessa and her story. I am so thankful I never related this much. Please keep up the amazing work and know that this show is so special to so many people in so many different ways. Thank you

  30. I think this is a great intro of part 2 of season three. Can’t wait for the next episode. This webseries is amazing. Than You for making such an awesome series… That is also so well made. I am the Vice President of my schools GSA, and I am going to share the link to this series at the next club meeting, and also maybe watch the PFlag episodes as a group. Again Thank You so Much :)

  32. How would the schedule of airing go? Like first block of season 3? Every day until the last one of block 2?

  33. wow. Great episode! Thanks for tackling another angle of coming out. It’s not always smooth for young people to come out and sometimes involves a lot of heartbreak. I had to leave my christian school and many of my friends to come out. This show means so much for me. It inspired me to come out. I remember when I was terrified to attend 1 pflag meeting. Now I am out to the world! There was so much heartbreak and hurt but it was so worth it.

  34. Kind of worried about how things will go with Vanessa. Her new ‘friends’ seem sketchy. Especially that Marco guy. He seems like the kind of guy who would antaginize someone then play the victim when they eventually blow up on him. Or maybe his remark on how being bi is only a transition phase just annoys me so much to the point that I just really dislike him. Tracy, while taciturn, seems like she’d be Vanessa’s most likely ally in that group. As to the last scene. Wow. I really don’t see that marriage lasting much longer, even if Vanessa does return home. Her father seems like he’s had enough of his wife’s bigoted ways. Can’t wait until the next episode!

  35. OMG I can’t wait until the next episode

    Her mom is so annoying like its your fault you wasn’t trying to protect her all you did was be selfish and shut her down so byeeeeeeeee

  37. Poor Vanessa is way out of her comfort zone. The group she has met look as though they will either rob her or take care of her at least she is off the streets so that’s a good thing. Thanks for making this it’s a hard topic but so relevant. The reation that young kids get from their family is all too important, it was obv. Vanessa’s parents where never going to be all ‘yeah!! ranbow flag!!’ about it. Hope she stays safe & is able to go back soon.

    • Maybe she will find her older brother and they both come back.

  38. Interesting start of the story. It seems like Erica has something against Marco. Maybe she’s bi, and dislikes Marco for saying that it’s just a transition.

  39. Awesome cant wait for more! how often will u be releasing new episodes?
