KINGS, QUEENS & IN-BETWEENS REVIEWED
“Kings, Queens & In-Betweens” examines the thriving drag scene of Columbus Ohio. However, it does a bit more than that. The documentary examines the inner workings of a complex and functional society. While downtown Columbus has embraced the LGBTQ community, new political structures have arisen among citizens and performers. Specifically, one drag performer uses the documentary to examine her desire to perform in drag, as she begins to transition.
For others, it’s all camp and part of a larger fun show. The documentary works a wise path by showing that every performer and every individual approaches drag and other concerns differently. Some need a therapeutic outlet, while others are killing time. When the gay dive bars start to get examined, the documentary treads into difficult area. That being said, I loved the world shown here and wish we had more than 90 minutes to spend with it.
