After a few years up north in New York City, out and proud Jason Potts returns to his Tennessee hometown only to find things have not changed for LGBT teenagers. Being gay is still the worst thing to be in Smyth, Tennessee. Wanting to help these gay teens and give them some hope, Jason hatches a plan while he is home for the weekend. Things quickly spiral out of control as Jason is put in charge of the first-ever gay pride parade in this sleepy, small southern town. Unkown to Jason, a scheming conservative city councilman and a holier-than-thou minister plan to round up Smyth's gay teens after the parade and send them off to an ex-gay ministry camp to be cured of their sinful ways.
