New Film Reveals Why Tyra Sanchez Disappeared After 'Drag Race'
After the deep-voiced pest turned princess Tyra Sanchez won season 2 of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2010, she kinda disappeared.
But Drag Dad, a Kickstarter-funded documentary by director Bjorn Floki explains where she went—Tyra (aka James William Ross IV) was busy raising his six-year-old son, Jeremiah.
Hmmm... okay, we'll bite. What's the film about? Fioki elaborates:
Capturing both the everyday and the sensational aspects of James’ dual existence as a drag queen and a parent, the film will examine James’s experience of leading these two contrastive lifestyles. What is it like for Jeremiah to have a dad who is sometimes a man and sometimes a woman? Is James any different a dad because he works as a female impersonator?
Filmed in an observational cinema verité style, Drag Dad will combine interviews with James, Tyra and Jeremiah, and footage of their everyday domestic lives in Atlanta to gain an in-depth view into this unique LGBT family.
We're digging this trend of making documentaries about gay reality stars. Remember that the documentary about Chris "Leave Britney Alone" Crocker Me At The Zoo started as a Kickstarter-funded project too.
Take a look at the trailer below and if you feel like it, throw a couple bucks their way. Donors will receive signed photo books and posters, limited edition DVDs, video drag lessons from Tyra, Tyra memorabilia, and even the opportunity for Tyra to personally“dragatize” you and perform at your party—oh my!
