Classic Film Series- He’s a Lady: A Brief History of Drag in Film- Flawless (1999)

Film
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
B2 Conference Room

Fresh City Life explores the role of male drag and crossdressing in films. Much like classic cabaret drag queens, these films represent one thing on the surface and, for those willing to look for it, reveal so much more through subtext and innuendo. Underneath the makeup and the theatrical dressing and the sharp-tongued rejoinders, there is humanity and understanding and compassion. But there are also laughs. There must always be laughs.
