The Queens

Part PARIS IS BURNING, part RuPaul’s Drag Race, and part Miss America; THE QUEENS is a feature-length documentary that explores the transgender subculture of competitive female impersonation. When the lights dim and the curtains part, gasps can be heard in the audience - because the queens in THE QUEENS never fail to mesmerize. They’re gorgeous, mysterious, complicated, and infinitely entertaining.

But the secrets and the scandals inside the longest-running female impersonation club in the nation, and behind the scenes of the most prestigious transgender-centric beauty pageant in the nation, are equally fascinating. The entertainers immersed in this community share the highs and lows of their lives as they compete for the coveted crown.
