Drag Queens and Their Moms

I teamed up with director Barbara Anastacio to create a series of 3 short films about up and coming drag queens and their "moms."  Traditionally, drag queens new to the scene will find a mom to teach them the ins-and-outs of drag - from painting to performance to persona.  Before the internet, the relationship was necessary to teach the art form as there was no other way to learn.  In the digital age, the mother-daughter relationship is still somewhat practical but largely symbolic. 

Sharon Needles was and is as crazy as people say. The stories are true.
