  • msmichel's rating of the film Muslim Drag Queens

    A documentary made for the BBC examining a tiny community of muslim drag queens in Britain. Young Asif Quraishi is the focal point here as a beautiful drag queen and activist who would later be recognized by the LGBT community for her efforts but its her familial relations that hit home. The doc isn't all glamour though it also focuses on another who doesn't necessarily 'pass' but still wants acceptance and love.
