Last night was the monthly MN T-Girls outing and we were invited to a preview of an upcoming documentary ‘The Queens’. The showing was held at Lush, a fabulous LGBTQ nightclub in Northeast Minneapolis.
According to the documentary’s website, The Queens takes viewers out of the politics and onto the stage with an exclusive look inside the first beauty pageant to ever allow transgender female impersonators to participate. Born out of discrimination, the Miss Continental Pageant is now one of the longest running and most prestigious contests of its kind in the United States, attracting competitors from around the globe.
The Queens humanizes and demystifies this group of often-misunderstood individuals; they’re fiercely determined, strikingly imaginative and possess jaw-dropping talent. The Queens will have you cheering for the creative spirit that lives within us all!
You can watch the first few minutes of the documentary here!
In attendance was director Mark Saxenmeyer and Tiffany T. Hunter, one of the featured girls in the movie.
After the showing Mark and Tiffany took questions from the audience and Tiffany performed for the crowd.
It was a very fun night and it’s always interesting to see a part of the transgender spectrum that I am not too familiar with. Thank you to Mark, Tiffany, Lush and to the MN T-Girls for coming! Unfortunately it was too dark to take photos of the group, but rest assured we all looked fabulous. Oh, and thank you to Corrie of Midwest Makeup Supply for the amazing makeover before the night started.
