Drag Me to the Movies: The Queen & Paris Is Burning (New 4K Restorations)
Fri, Dec 20 / 7 pm
More than 40 years before RuPaul's Drag Race, the 1967 Miss All-American Camp Beauty Pageant introduced audiences to the world of competitive drag. Organized by LGBTQ icon and activist Flawless Sabrina, it boasted a star-studded panel of judges. The Queen features an epic diatribe calling out the pageant's bias delivered by Crystal LaBeija. A Drag performance intermission by Emerald Stardust will be followed at 9:30 pm with a screening of a newly restored copy of PAri is Burning - a vibrant snapshot of the 80s through the eyes of NYC’s African American and Latinx Harlem drag.
