The Reporters Inc. is thrilled to announce the video-on-demand release of its new feature-length documentary, The Queens. (Watch the official trailer above.)
Part Pose and Paris is Burning, part RuPaul’s Drag Race and part Miss America, The Queens follows beauty queen hopefuls Tiffany, Gabby, Sunny and Naysha as they pursue their dreams of becoming the next Miss Continental. The international pageant is considered to be the most prestigious (and sometimes most cut-throat) of its kind. The Queens takes viewers inside this little-known subculture of glamour and illusion that attracts thousands of competitors worldwide. Misunderstood or dismissed by some in mainstream society, the contestants are vying for the crown, but also for acceptance, validation and respect.
The Queens is now available for streaming rentals and purchases, including a premium purchase package that includes four Bonus Features: Raw, unedited interviews with Miss Continental pageant contestants backstage, Highlights from the Miss Continental Plus pageant (for plus-sized contestants), A look inside the new Baton Show Lounge in Chicago (where many Miss Continental winners perform), and a Music Video featuring The Queens original song, “Pretty Kitty.”
