Closing Film

Drag Kids Megan Wennberg

Films index A to Z

Stephan, Jason, Nemis and Bracken aren’t teens yet. Like other kids their age they’re living carefree lives except when it comes to their shared passion: drag queen routines. In character (Queen Lactatia, Laddy GaGa or Suzan Bee Anthony) or exaggerating feminine stereotypes (Bracken), these young transform and display themselves, celebrating their self-expression. Megan Wennberg follows them on the eve of their first group performance at Montreal Pride. With a sympathetic eye, she captures their triumphs and moments of doubt, and the loyal support of their parents and a community hoping they will get to grow up and flourish as respected, confident, freedom-loving people.

Presented in collaboration with The Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies of McGill University and Espace Libre
