  • Short Description

A romance about a teen who feels he has to hide the fact that he does drag to get a boyfriend.

It’s like an old movie. Joshua wants it all — to be a drama queen and get the guy.



Drag has never been so popular, and this LGBTQ+ romance takes a look at how a teen embraces the drag queen dream. Sixteen-year-old Joshua does drag on social media but wants to have the full drag performance experience. Trouble is, he’s attracted to guys who don’t like drag and want nothing to do with gay men they think are feminine and have a flamboyant image. With the help of a drag mother, Joshua has the chance to live his dream, but only by keeping it secret from the guy he is dating. Grounded by what Joshua learns about how drag continues to be controversial in the gay community, this essential light-hearted story focuses on facing your emotions and finding your authentic self, even if it’s by pretending to be someone else.
