  • About the Edition

    Through the compelling stories of eight performers in the thriving drag scene in the unlikely location of Columbus, Ohio, the film dives into the often misunderstood topic of "gender" itself. Giving rare insight into an underground scene, KQIB captures how an unlikely midwestern city full of vibrant performers tackles complexities of gender expression, personal identity, and human rights, all with humor, great music, big hair, and duct tape.
