  • Filthy Gorgeous, The Trannyshack Story
    (Sean Mullens, USA, 2005, video, 84 min.)

    Take a walk on the wild side with Filthy Gorgeous, The Trannyshack Story. If you have ever entered The Stud in San Francisco on a Tuesday night, you have walked into a bizarre universe of outrageous performances, elaborate costumes, and extreme artistry that is unlike any other drag show on earth.

    The bastard brainchild of drag superstar Heklina, Trannyshack began life a decade ago as a venue to dish out some drag attitude drenched in debauchery and subversion - not to mention the occasional bucket of pig's blood.

    Mullens's fierce documentary recounts the history of Trannyshack, with performances from fabled theme nights such as the delirious 'Cracked Out Divas', and 'Weapons of Ass Destruction', not to mention the horror show 'Serial Killer Night', featuring Squeaky Blonde and Peaches Christ performing a musical ode to the Manson murders.

    Performers are seen both in and out of drag, offering insight into their inspiration while putting a human face on their manic creations. The film also features cameo appearances from Trannyshackers past and present including Justin Bond from Kiki and Herb and Ana Matronic from the Scissor Sisters.

    Always creative and quite often jaw-dropping in its shock value, Filthy Gorgeous, The Trannyshack Story is infectiously fun and a great excuse to go out on a Thursday night.
