Hello; I am a writer/aspiring filmmaker seeking bio queens/ faux queens of all ages, races, shapes, and sizes, on the East Coast to interview for a collaborative documentary that I am making with my good friend Laura, who is a queer gender studies academic film scholar living in Portland, and who is looking for queens out there on the West Coast. After we have gathered information from both coasts, we will combine them both and create this documentary.
What is a Bio-Queen you may ask?
A faux queen or bio queen is a female performance artist who adopts the style typical of male drag queens. A faux queen may be jocularly described as “a drag queen trapped in a woman’s body”, though few are female to male transsexuals.
We are also seeking queens all throughout the US, as well as internationally, so please feel free to spread the word!
We are an indie production company and are queer female film enthusiasts/LGBTQIA advocates/writers/directors/producers. We would love to hear from any and all bio queens; tell us a bit about yourself, your passions, how you got started, strengths, weaknesses, struggles, etc. We’re really trying to raise positive awareness of this subculture within the LGBTQIA community, and also just in general; it is truly a craft to be admired by all, and we would love to have you be a part of this collaborative passion project ! We want all voices to be heard, so please feel free to respond with any questions, comments, ideas, or to set up an interview. Have an amazing day and hope to talk to you soon !
