  • Interest Level: Grade 8 - Grade 12
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

Sixteen-year-old Joshua does drag on social media but wants to have the full drag performance experience. But 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 light-hearted story focuses on facing your emotions and finding your authentic self, even if it’s by pretending to be someone else.
