DRAG BECOMES HIM world premiere - A documentary about Jinkx Monsoon

by Amos Lassen - Special to the SGN

The documentary, DRAG BECOMES HIM, starring Jinkx Monsoon and directed by Alex Berry will have its world premiere on April 29 at the Cinerama Theatre in Seattle.

Jinkx was the winner of season five of LOGO TV's 'RuPaul's Drag Race.' Based on a series of short films made by Berry and Jerick Hoffer, Jinkx's boyish half, both before and after the filming of 'RuPaul's Drag Race,' the film chronicles the path of Jerick/Jinkx from their hometown of Portland, Oregon, to Cornish College of the Arts here in Seattle and the establishment of their drag career in the clubs and bars of Capitol Hill. Along the way, you'll hear Jerick/Jinkx tell the story of their journey with the help of family, friends, and co-stars giving their own testimony. For Seattle fans, it will be a special treat as dozens of familiar faces will appear in the film which also features 'Seattle' as a major character in the story, as showcased by the gorgeous night time camera work of director Alex Berry.'

DRAG BECOMES HIM is a behind-the-scenes foray into the personality and passion of entertainer Jerick Hoffer, aka Jinkx Monsoon, a drag queen the Seattle's The Stranger dubs 'the best f**king performer in Seattle.' The cherished original series will be expanded to include additional footage and an entirely new edit, offering an even deeper glimpse into the life of this charming, Gregory Award-winning, Off-Broadway-performing, 'RuPaul's Drag Race'-winning, all-around loveable drag superstar.

DRAG BECOMES HIM is directed by Alex Berry and produced by Basil Shadid and Dual Power Productions. Jerick Hoffer (aka Jinkx Monsoon) is a seasoned Portland-born entertainer and graduate of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. As early as 2006, he appeared as the lead dancer in the world's largest drag queen chorus line, which made the Guinness Book of World Records. By 2012, he had advanced to roles in Seattle theaters, playing Moritz in Spring Awakening (Balagan Theatre) and Angel in RENT (The 5th Avenue Theatre).

DRAG BECOMES HIM provides an intimate glimpse inside the life of internationally acclaimed drag performer Jinkx Monsoon. This raw and affectionate film follows the passionate pursuits that transformed a working class boy in a struggling family to an illustrious performer on a global stage.

Influenced by a grandmother with charm school polish, Jerick Hoffer learned to fuse the sophistication of a Southern belle with the crass behavior of a working girl into his character. Jinkx Monsoon has what RuPaul describes as 'a stage left, off-center kind of quality.'

DRAG BECOMES HIM follows Jinkx's trajectory from a small stage in Portland, Oregon through a growing career in Seattle to the relinquishing of the crown one year after winning 'RuPaul's Drag Race.'

Expanded from the acclaimed five-part web series of the same name, this cherished portrayal of Jinkx Monsoon peels back the layers on one of the brightest stars on the drag circuit.
