Drag Becomes Him
Jerick Hoffer is a seasoned entertainer, best known as Jinkx Monsoon from ”RuPaul’s Drag Race”. This film provides an intimate glimpse inside the life of this internationally acclaimed drag performer.
This documentary follows the passionate pursuits that transformed a working class boy in a struggling family to an illustrious performer on a global stage.
Influenced by a grandmother with charm school polish, Jerick learned to fuse the sophistication of a southern belle with the crass behavior of a working girl, and has what RuPaul describes as “a stage left, off center kind of quality.”
This documentary follows Jinkx’s trajectory from a small stage in Portland, Oregon through a growing career in Seattle to the relinquishing of the crown one year after winning RuPaul’s Drag Race. A must for all Drag Race fans.
