Drag Kids

milkboys Film & TV, Films & TV 3 Comments

TV veteran Megan Wennberg has spent most of her career working as a script supervisor on shows like Quantico and Trailer Park Boys, as well as directing several short films. Now, what began as a short television documentary turned into a full feature documentary: Drag Kids.

The documentary  focuses on four young drag queens from around the world: Stephan/Laddy Gaga from Spain; Jason/Susan Bee Anthony from the US; Bracken, a female hyperqueen in Canada and fellow Canadian Nemis/Queen Lactatia.

The pint-sized drag troupe comes together to learn from one another and perform during a Montreal Pride event, and plenty of glittering, heel-wearing hijinks ensue.

Drag Kids had its stateside debut at NewFest in New York earlier this week and a wide release will follow next year (I’ll post it here of course if it should become available for free).

  1. I was a chorus boy in two major New York drag shows from 1959 to ’61. The drag queens all started doing drag in their own homes as children . . . not just wearing their mother’s high heels as any child might do. This isn’t new, it’s just no longer kept secret.
