Part concert film, part documentary and totally fun, Barry Shils' 1995 release captures the good cheer, outrageous humor and high energy of downtown Manhattan's annual Labor Day "drag" extravaganza.

An affectionate, rousing tribute to the annual drag-queen festival in New York City.

While this documentary could have been simply excessive and superficial, a sweet complexity and some darkness arrive toward the end.
