Storyline

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.

A gorgeous, intimate portrayal of a insanely talented performer.
25 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

A gorgeous (thanks to the cinematography of director Alex Berry) portrait of Jinkx Monsoon (Jerick Hoffer). This film expands the web series and follows Jinkx long before she became 'America's next drag superstar'. This film also shows how greatly Seattle has influenced Jinkx and the drag world, changing it for the better. RuPaul's Drag Race will never be the same because of Jinkx. An intimate and fascinating look into a true, insanely talented performer. "Every time a drag queen gets to pee in the middle of the night, a fairy gets its wings." That is a Jinkx quote from the film in the bathroom at PONY queer bar in Seattle. The title of the film comes from one of Jinkx's favorite films growing up, Death Becomes Her, which she memorized and quoted dialogue constantly to family. And if you have seen that film, this film is definitely not 'flaaaaacid!'
