Tyra Sanchez was the queen I wanted when she was one of the feature queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race. After coming across as a total bitch, then warming up to the other girls the audience began to warm up to her. The deep voiced queen turned it out for every single challenge, and she truly did deserve to win. When on the show, we learned that Ms. Sanchez also had a son. NOW there is a Kickstarter project to create a film and document the life of a boy and his Drag Dad! Please support this!
Drag Dad is an independent documentary project about a six year old boy named Jeremiah and his father, the drag queen superstar named Tyra Sanchez. In 2010, Tyra Sanchez won the popular reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race, propelling Tyra and her creator James into stardom.
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?
