Kinsey Sicks: Almost Infamous
[ venue info
This 2008 American documentary film provides an intimate look at a queer act struggling to come to terms with its own success.
The members of the Kinsey Sicks describe themselves as America’s only self-supporting, multi-person, out, queer, draga- pella, political comedy revue. And they’ve done quite well for themselves, making a living playing sold-out shows in college towns, entertaining audiences with songs like “Rent A Homo,” I Want To Be A Republican” and “AZT” (sung to the tune of the Jackson 5’s own three-letter ’70s hit). But Ken Bielenberg’s spirited documentary does more than capture their raunchy humor and cutting satire: It tracks the group’s preparation for a potential openended run at the Las Vegas Hilton. And when these drag queens hit Vegas, you know there’s going to be drama.
Presented as part of the Pittsburgh International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. For more information, call (412) 422-6776.
