More than 40 years before RuPaul's Drag Race, this ground-breaking documentary about the 1967 Miss All-American Camp Beauty Pageant introduced audiences to the world of competitive drag. The film takes viewers backstage to kiki with the contestants as they rehearse, throw shade, and transform into their drag personas for the big event. Organized by pioneering LGBTQ+ icon and activist Jack Doroshow, the competition boasted a star-studded panel of judges including Andy Warhol.
