THE Queen

The Queen, Frank Simon

This 1968 documentary follows drag contestants in New York's Miss
All-America Camp Beauty Pageant, a 1967 event that apparently had no
trouble drawing participants two years before Stonewall. What's most
amazing is how little some things have changed: Bitchiness is timeless,
and some men still shouldn't wear pumps. The gulf of time is most
evident in comparisons the filmmaker couldn't make-this shoestring
pageant is no Wigstock, and that pretty teenage boy in the chorus grew
up to be the late, notorious pre-op transsexual International Chrysis.
The Queen is a time capsule well worth cracking open.
