Drag Kids (2019)
NAME OF FILM: DRAG KIDS
DIRECTOR(S): Megan Wennberg
STARRING: Nemis Quinn Mélançon Golden, Bracken Hanke, Dominique Hanke
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Drag origin stories are overflowing with misfit kids who were bullied at school and at home because of their love of feminine clothes and cosmetics. But what if those kids were free to be themselves from an early age? Drag Kids introduces us to four fabulous youngsters who have been given that very opportunity. Stephen, Jason, Bracken, and Nemis, age nine to eleven, are already fierce drag queens. They come from different backgrounds but all share a love of fabulous frocks and glittery makeup. When the kids are brought together by their deeply loving, supportive parents, they bond over costumes, makeup and a love of drag. But do they have what it takes to perform and compete with adult queens? Drag Kids takes a joyous look at what can happen when parents support their children’s dreams of fabulousness.
Over $40,000 in prizes were given to the winners of the 2019 Inside Out LGBT Film Festival with top honors going to Megan Wennberg for DRAG KIDS for Best Canadian Feature.
