A glorious testament to a national treasure...

As great as this is, it's not going to persuade homophobes into understanding why allowing same-sex marriage is a good thing, but I wish it would.

Horgan's engaging and concisely comprehensive film tells the story of Panti's origins and how she came to be The Queen of Ireland.

Intimate yet wide-ranging.

December 4, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The filmmaking is workmanlike, but many of the ideas explored are sharp: drag queens like Panti, one observer notes, take the fear of effeminacy and turn it into a strength that is celebrated.

Unfortunately Conor Horgan's feature length documentary about Ireland's most influential drag queen lacks sparkle, wit and bite - precisely some of the attributes Panti, and other great drag artists, so embody.
