Confessions of a Teenage Drag King
A teen living a double life discovers that the girl they have a crush on appreciates both aspects of their identity.
By day, Lauri is a quiet, just-average high school student trying to stay as unnoticed as possible. By night, Lauri becomes Ren, a confident teenage drag king known for his crowd-pleasing performances at an all-ages drag show.
One night after a show Ren meets Clover and feels an instant connection, but then Clover shows up as the new kid at Lauri's school. While Ren continues to charm Clover, Lauri becomes more and more awkward in her presence.
It seems like it's just a matter of time before Lauri and Ren's two worlds collide. Will they learn to let Clover into their double life, or risk losing her for good?
