About the film:
As society grapples with issues of transgender acceptance and understanding, The Queens chronicles the journey of contestants, past and present, who compete for the coveted crown of Miss Continental. Now in its 38th year, Miss Continental is the first national beauty pageant to embrace transgender female impersonators.
Part Paris is Burning, part RuPaul’s Drag Race and part Miss America, critics are raving about The Queens. Lavender magazine calls this feature-length documentary a "rich and vibrant joy ride," presented with "gritty vibrancy, showbiz pizzazz and erotic splendor.”
