1930’s Manhattan, gay clubs were thriving on the Lower East Side. Drag kings were stars of their clubs and they were offered protection by an unlikely source - the Mafia. This was a delicate relationship. A progressive drag king tries to be a part of a society nowhere near ready for him yet as well as a new side business with the mob in the hopes of saving his club - his saving grace.

Writer Statement

I do not feel a writer needs a statement to go out and be a writer. I write for all genres, all people, all stories. I write to capture a moment in time that we recognize as a moment that is both individual and can happen to anyone. I write with the intention of not giving the audience as easy answer or ending. I write to tell a never-ending, always changing story of a never-ending, never changing society.
