Carson (Kristopher Bottrall) is a perfect little boy who likes to dress like the perfect little girl and Carson is deadly serious about crowns and pronouns. Carson's mother, Connie (Ed Jones), loves and accepts Carson but wishes Carson wasn't so competitive. Carson always gets what they want, and they really want to win the drag pageant at their very progressive school - The Josephine Baker Rainbow Academy for Gifted Students. When Carson loses to Summer Breeze, they vow to get that crown - one way or another...
