Storyline

Las Vegas promoters planning a review starring Jahna Steele invited transsexuals to participate in "The World's Most Beautiful Transsexual Pageant," a two-day contest from which eight or so women would be offered jobs in the review. About 20 women arrive for all-night rehearsals and the pageant itself: swimsuit, evening gown, and talent competition, the selection of eight finalists and three prize winners. We follow the women backstage and get in-depth profiles of six: two from Chicago and one each from LA, San Francisco, San Antonio, and Columbia, South Carolina. We meet their families, and we learn about their lives and their journeys of self-discovery and acceptance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

don't judge a book by its cover...
19 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this film on Showtime last week ... I guess I was kind of expecting the typical "train- wreck" treatment of the subject manner but actually found myself totally captivated and entertained.

The women in this documentary were born male but are now all trying to become Las Vegas Showgirls. They show a lot of courage ... a lot more courage than most of people I know.

The beginning of the movie is kind of weak but it really gets a lot better as you get to know the various girls in the contest....

I would have liked to have seen more of the lady that hosted the contest and the Vegas promoter who put the whole thing together

AND for a documentary the music was surprisingly good as well !

For what it is I give it four-stars!
