Drag Becomes Him provides an intimate glimpse inside the life of internationally acclaimed drag performer Jinkx Monsoon. This raw and affectionate film 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 Hoffer learned to fuse the sophistication of a southern belle with the crass behavior of a working girl. Jinkx Monsoon has what RuPaul describes as "a stage left, off center kind of quality." Drag Becomes Him 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. Expanded from the acclaimed five-part web series of the same name, this cherished portrayal of Jinkx Monsoon peels back the layers on one of the brightest stars on the drag circuit.

Loved it!
9 November 2015 | by anapaulapalancaresSee all my reviews

It was so interesting to see my favorite drag queen under this new light. At the end of the film you realize how they grew as Jerick, while Jinkx was taking over the world. The family interviews were very sincere and helped me understand more about how difficult the life of a person born to stand out can be sometimes. I rented this film for 24 hours and watched it six times, I couldn't stop myself. I love Jinkx, so I'm very grateful that Alex Berry wanted to film this documentary and let us fans and anyone who is interested get a glimpse of the life of this very talented, lovely and humble human being. It's always going to be MONSOON SEASON.
