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.’
