RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 finalist, Peppermint, will be the subject of a new documentary entitled Project Peppermint. The film raises the question,
Can you be a transgender woman and a drag queen?
“Even if I’d never been assigned male at birth, I would have found my way to the stage. Am I going to continue to do drag and wear lashes and put on makeup and go out on stage? Yes. My spirit belongs on stage.“
She opens up about her past and how she thought about being a sex worker as a last resort to pay for her transition before appearing on Drag Race. Trans icon Laverne Cox and Season 8 Drag Race winner, Bob the Drag Queen, will also make appearances in the doc.
An Indiegogo crowd funding page has been going to help produce and distribute the documentary, which is due out in 2018. The Project Peppermint trailer is below.
