Welcomes you to a Film Screening!

KINGS, QUEENS & IN-BETWEENS!

Sometimes being on stage is the place where we can be most ourselves is something we have said time after time.
Tonight we look at performance in a wider sence, as community, space to grow and as a place for political voices. But also, what happen when we retire from performing and the strong Family Bonds we create with each other.

Filmed in Columbus, Ohio, US this is a fun, fabulous and frank look into ourselves and our lives as Kings, Queens & In-Betweens.

Length 90 mins
Live Performance +
Q & A after screening with Adam All, Gingzilla, Fiona Blair and more tbc, all people within our Drag culture here in London and elsewhere.

KINGS, QUEENS, & IN-BETWEENS is a documentary on drag queens and kings in Columbus, Ohio. (to be completed in 2016)

‘Through personal stories of kings, queens, and transgender performers, the film ripples out to cover larger themes: what drag is & means… the definitions of family (biological and chosen)… Columbus as a vibrant creative city in the middle of a political swing state… LGBTQ rights & discriminatory policies like the anti-marriage law… and ultimately, the difference between sex, sexuality, and gender.

Notably, KQIB will be the first feature doc to include the entire gender performance spectrum – kings, queens, and “in-betweeners.”

This documentary (directed by Gabrielle Burton & produced by Five Sisters Productions) captures how such terrific performers tackle the complexities and pathos of gender expression, personal identity, and human rights — all with humor, great music, big hair, and duct tape.’

Interview with The Dykeness

Interview with The Dykeness, before they go on stage at Female Masculinity Appreciation Society, 10th October. They played Bar Wotever earlier this year and was an instant hit. This is what we said, wrote about them then, here are their answers to some of our questions……

The Dykeness Interview

How and when did you all meet and decide to become a band?

Thrustin’ Hawkins: My gift to the universe is music. And we’re just a band of really nice guys, making music about what it’s like to be a guy, with other guys. But not in a gay way.

Johnny B. Wood: I needed a strong male role model so I don’t grow up into an independent breadwinner like my mom. So I started following Thrustin’ around.

Thrustin’ Hawkins: I couldn’t get him to leave.

Billy Bob Big Johnson Johnson: My folks came up from the South of Space during the great Uranium Rush of 3025, and while I was passed out at a drive-by on Mars these guys picked me up in their spaceship and got me to play this here bass machine.

Dyck Van Dick: I think it’s important that music has a social cause. As your Earth Lord Kanye West bravely said, ‘Pop a wheelie on the Zeitgeist, I’m gonna start a new movement.’

Thrustin’ Hawkins : We don’t know what a Zeitgeist is, but it sounds like some bullshit a woman would say, so we are here to obstruct it. With a wheel.

The Dykeness Bar WoteverWhy do you play the music you play?

Thrustin Hawkins : We know how hard it is to be a dude here on planet earth, so we’re making it real clear that we also have Very Deep Feelings, About Stuff, and that’s why we make the music we do.

Johnny B. Wood: We wear our fedoras so the Hot Earth Chicks know we’re nice guys.

Dyck Van Dyck: Our new album is an autumnal, mellow meditation on love, life, and getting laid.

Billy Bob Big Johnson: High five !

Thrustin’ Hawkins: Yes ! So, to answer your question – we met, all wearing these fedoras here that are the intergalactic driving symbol for ‘Approaching Nice Guy!’, and we are here to give you Hot Earth Chicks some hot, pumping, glam rock ‘n roll!

The Dykeness Bar WoteverWhat do you do in your spare time, ie when not on stage?

Johnny B Wood : Let’s just say it involves Hot Earth Babes.

Thrustin Hawkins: Johnny, you haven’t met any Hot Earth Babes.

Johnny : Let’s just say it involves Hot Earth Babes, that I haven’t met yet.

Billy Bob: Loving the ladies.

Dyck Van Dick: Mostly I read Kierkegaard.

Thrustin’ Hawkins: Well life is a stage. When I’m not stage, I pretend I’m on stage. That’s why I’ve converted my bathroom into a live-streamed television channel.

Do you have a message to your fans planning on coming to see you at FMAS 10 oct?

Dyck Van Dick: Be excellent to each other and party on dudes.

Billy Bob Big Johnsson Johnsson: The North of Space is too gentrified. Don’t park on an asteroid if you see a Space Waitrose.

Johhny: Mom, will you pick me up at half past nine?

Thrustin’ Hawkins: Look, we’re just regular guys, and what see is what you get. And what you get is what you see, and what you’re gonna see, is what you’re gonna get, with a coating of spandex and glitter, and we have a special discount for Hot Earth Chicks: You get a free lascivious stare with every entrance. Rock and rooooooooll!

Dyck Van Dick: Thrustin’, put the microphone down.

Thrustin’: Sorry
