In this playful and rollicking swashbuckler, drag king pirates take to the high seas on a quest to restore stolen treasures. The gender-skewed adventures begin when Butch, a handsome, but naive baby butch, is compelled by the Queen to seek out and bring back her purlined "Koilos" the source of all pleasures and the key to order and harmony on her island. As an additional inducement, the Queen holds out to Butch, the promised return of the hostaged Claudia, a beautiful and feisty femme, who is not about to sit idly by awaiting rescue!. Under the Queen's wrathful gaze, tops are bottomed, tranny sailors seduce pirate Captains, Kings are Mothers and cross-dressing femmes pack a wallop.Written by

Girl King won the best lesbian feature at Ottawa's Making Scenes Gay and Lesbian Film festival when it showed. This honour is mostly attributable to it being the only lesbian feature that played that year.
It is hard to know how to properly express the horror that was this movie. The production values were disastrous - it appears to have been shot somewhere off the coast of Northern British Columbia, judging by the fir trees that appear in the background and the grey overcast skies. Cutting in stock footage of parrots in palm trees didn't disguise this fact one bit.
The plot is hopelessly awful. It consists of drag king pirates on a quest to find the lost "Koilos" of the pirate king, and some extremely long scenes of the king wailing about her lost koilos. I was wailing in pain as well, but we were waiting to see the second movie in the double feature, so we couldn't walk out - which would have been my advice to anyone else unfortunate enough to be in a room with this film.
