Paris Is Burning

Paris Is Burning

Pretty fantastic look at the drag scene/trans people in New York in the 80s. amazing that this did well during the 80s at the height of the AIDs crisis. But also how sad that Venus died before the film was even completed. 

I love the “realness” categories as they seem to be poking fun of the people they’re supposed to be mimicking, but also so far away from how the people usually dress that it’s “drag” for them.
