Late one night in 1984, Lady Bunny and a few friends drunkenly wandered from the Pyramid Club in the East Village to Tompkins Square Park and staged an impromptu drag show in the bandshell. This would soon become an annual drag bacchanal that lasted up until 2001. And now, Lady Bunny has brought it back. This past summer, the festival returned, bringing together legendary queens with some of the new children of drag, into one of the largest drag performances ever staged. Wig explores the origins and the influence of the historic festival through rich archival footage, as well as provides a look into the contemporary drag movement that the festival served as a foundation for. Wig is a celebration of New York drag culture, and those personalities and performances that contribute to the ways we understand queerness, art, and identity today.
Plot: Spotlighting the art of drag, and centered on the New York staple Wigstock, this documentary showcases the personalities and performances that inform the ways we understand queerness, art and identity today.

Only the Talented Plus Herstory 1301
Queens with real talent beyond shopping/sourcing/renting/borrowing outfits and serving face. In an Instagram/Kim K/Paris Hilton/Famous with no real talent world, every single one of these ladies turn it. This document is thoughtful and inclusive. My vote for surprise breakout star was Charlene Incarnate, probably because I’m a gulf-coaster, and our scene is dominated by pageant drag. And the herstory is so amazing and critical. I really hope that someone tackles Drag on a ken burns level (think jazz or baseball), but until then, this is one of the best nonfiction works I’ve seen on the evolution of modern drag. They had to make a choice on what to show in this format and around the rebirth of wigstock. I hope someone in the future does an massive scope docu series from late 1800’s drag to Paris is Burning era ballroom to RuPaul’s breakout to modern day.
