This groundbreaking documentary will have a limited theatrical release.
The award-winning documentary Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens which highlights the drag kings, drag queens and transgender performers in Columbus, Ohio is preparing for its national VOD launch on March 7 as well as a limited theatrical release on March 3.
Directed by Gabrielle Burton and produced by Five Sisters Productions, this documentary explores a Midwestern city with an extraordinary and unexpected drag scene, and the larger theme of exactly what gender is and means.
Through the compelling personal stories of eight performers and their troupes in Columbus, Ohio, Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens makes a complex subject approachable for mainstream audiences—inviting viewers into a conversation about the distinct and important differences between, gender, sex, and sexuality, which has not been represented in film before.
This heart-warming and engaging film is thought provoking and sends a message of love and acceptance, reflecting a community unified in the belief that we are all just human.
The documentary has been selected as the inaugural film by New York’s LGBTQ film festival NewFest for their screening event series, which will take place on February 15 at 7:00pm followed by a special panel discussion about the issues raised by the film.
In attendance will be drag queen Kari Kerning, drag king Dr. Cool Ethan, and trans performer Luster Dela Virgion (aka Sile Singleton), as well as director Gabrielle Burton and producer Jennifer Burton, two of the Burton Sisters who helm Five Sisters Productions.
Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
