In 2014 Luke was a teenager living in Athens, Ohio – adopted and the only child of a single mother. After dropping out of college he moved to New York to pursue a career in gay porn. In the city he called himself Levi Karter and became one of the world’s biggest gay porn stars working for porn label CockyBoys. First secretly, Karter decided to pursue another fantasy and began a second career as drag queen Sassy Frass Meaner. From his early video diaries to his second coming out – groundbreaking in a gay porn industry often fixated on hyper-masculinity – this emotional, entertaining documentary draws a multi-layered (self) portrait of Levi Karter and tells the story of two major turning points in his life.
