This marvellously entertaining and touching doc chronicles four very different drag performers under the age of 12 as they meet and celebrate their shared interest for the first time. Having faced an enormous amount of scrutiny over their brief drag careers, DRAG KIDS frames their celebration through an essential lens of loving and upstanding parenthood, and follows the four young stars as they prepare for the biggest performance of their lives at Montreal Pride.Fierté Montréal.

Performances from Dis and Romeo De La Cruz. Followed by a discussion led by Wig In A Box Promotions, with Clare Lowe, Dis, Romeo De La Cruz and Jersey, discussing their experience of coming into drag.

International Drag Nightmare, Gender Destroyer, and Burlesque Performer encouraging Queerdos around the world to embrace the revolution of pleasure.

Only cocktail Mx with a twistxd concoction of Non-Binary finery, ounces of Transness, and overlooked moves.

Bristol’s Tim Burton Fashion Model, Jersey the Devil is a Local Bristol Queen consisting of creepy but yet glamourous looks.

Clare Lowe is a queer events organiser, activist and art trainee therapist with their own promotions company, Wig in a Box promotions.
