A dream is housed in the dusty, unused storage room above the Tickled Texan, one of Amber, Texas’ two gay bars. Journalist April Sims serves as the reluctant leader in making that dream a reality. Under her guidance an eclectic group of women build a safe place in a community where being lesbian can be dangerous and difficult.
April meets Sophia Mendez, a local attorney, as she seeks legal guidance for members of the group. In meeting with the women of the Ladies’ Room, Sophia finds herself dealing with personal as well as professional issues. When a radical religious group levels an attack on the entire gay community, even to the point of a vigilante attack on the Tickled Texan, the strength and unity of the women of The Ladies’ Room will be tested to the core.
Only time will tell if the beauty of the dream can override the ugliness of a harsh reality.
