DOCUMENTARY: Life’s a Drag

 As part of a university module (Advanced Documentary) myself and two other students (Angelina Masih and Tom Whitby) created the (below) short documentary film.

Reigning Queen Bee The Witch Blair is living a dual life, funding his on-stage persona with his day job as an admin professional. His sharp-wit and love for Disney is driving his drag career, where he often mixes his strong political opinions into his act. We followed Blair, both in and out of the wig, to see if life really is a drag.
