In an age where teenagers are debilitated by play stations and numbed by wi-fi networks, RainBow Gore Cake has once again broken the mold. By eschewing homework and other tiresome responsibilities, the world’s youngest performing drag queen has written and produced a brand new act, Lost Queens. A story fit for the drag queen of the damned.

Teenage sisters, Butylene O'Kipple and RainBowGore Cake are relocated to Seattle with their deprived mother, Jackie Hell. While in the heart of Capitol Hill, Butylene spies a group of queens looking very different. Upon following them, she is taken to their secret club where she is, unbeknownst, transformed into a Vampira. Does the occasionally-brave Rainbow Gore Cake has the make up and power to win back her sister?
