East London’s Drag Docu “Dressed As A Girl” Finally Comes Out!!!

East London’s alternative drag scene seemed to explode in the early 2000’s, and at the front of the trashy revolution were a handful of queens, featured in the new documentary Dressed As A Girl. I was lucky enough to witness the whole shape-shifting first hand while living in London right at the beginning, hanging with my bestie and one of the stars of the film, Scottee (pictured below). “Was our scene truly alternative? I think it was, says Scottee. But with the commercial successes of Drag Race, Little Britain & Gaga (for better or worse), what we did seems less scary to the outside world – perhaps we exist in a new post-drag world. My ego would love to tell you London has been influenced by us, but I don’t think it has. I think our legacy is yet to be fulfilled but it won’t be because we wore outré outfits!”

Director Colin Rothbart spent five years following the principal characters who talk about their dragtastic times and the personal demons that often hide beneath the mascara. Starring Jonny Woo, Scottee, Holestar, Amber, John Sizzle and Pia Arber. Producers include World of Wonder’s Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, and Chris Amos. If you’re in London, check out the world premiere during the BFI Flare London LGBT Film Festival, Sunday, March 22, 2015. Get tix HERE!
