The Boulet Brothers host a competition of drag performers who don't just push the envelope - they chew it up and spit it out. With themes like Zombie and challenges like being buried alive, this ain't your momma's drag competition.
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.Written by

From a young queen in Portland Oregon, to a Seattle queen, to Americas next drag super star and beyond! It has been a pleasure to watch these events from a distance being part of the community in Portland. Jinx is an amazing artist all around. This film is a beautiful look at who he is at the heart of it all. The honest interviews with his family shine a light on the struggles faced by many and give hope for overcoming some of those struggles. There is a bright future ahead of this amazing artist and getting an intimate look and how he had gotten to this point is a gift that he had given us by opening and sharing his world for all to see.
