Amazing artist

From a young queen in Portland Oregon, to a Seattle queen, to Americas next drag super star and beyond! It has been a pleasure to watch these events from a distance being part of the community in Portland. Jinx is an amazing artist all around. This film is a beautiful look at who he is at the heart of it all. The honest interviews with his family shine a light on the struggles faced by many and give hope for overcoming some of those struggles. There is a bright future ahead of this amazing artist and getting an intimate look and how he had gotten to this point is a gift that he had given us by opening and sharing his world for all to see.

Fascinating documentary!

Fascinating documentary. It's mesmerizing the process by which the drag persona comes to life from her artistic creator. It's like the construction of an entity who is very different and have a life on her own but it's still part of the artist who conceptualized her. I also found this documentary very personal and really touching, showing the family dynamics and the interpersonal relationships that evolved with (and influenced, perhaps?) the creation process of Jinkx Monsoon. In the world of entertainment, there are many fascinating ways to engage audiences with suspended disbelief; I think that drag queens and female impersonators take it to the next level, by bringing to life characters that are part of their creator, and part of multiple movie and multimedia influences, and also products of intensive research in social issues that affect GLBT community. Female impersonation is still taboo in many ways in our society, and this documentary helps to break such boundaries and inform the audience.

I found it to be a universal story thats easily relatable

Such an interesting story about one of the forefront drag queens who really doesn't get enough credit.

I saw this doc at Inside Out film festival and really enjoyed the insight to the hard work and dedication Jinkx has put in to become the international performer she is today. It reminded me why I loved Jinx in the first place.

It was an honest portrayal of a boy who performs in girls clothes. We so often put queens on a pedestal in the LGBT community (and rightly so) but it is nice to learn a little more about the boy and the thought processes beneath all that make up and corsets. Not to diminish drag race but it was great to get a more personable side to the story of this truly talented team, with out the sensationalist editing.
