ABOUT THE FILM
Immigrating from Cameroon, a country where Queerness is criminalized, a young man finds his purpose through performance, and eventually becomes the very first winner of now-iconic reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race.
At a moment when anti-drag, anti-trans, and anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric is extra heightened in the U.S. and abroad, the unique and positive intersectional representation in BEING BEBE is poised to be a useful tool supporting efforts to make the world a safer place for all the “Baby BeBes” out there. BeBe’s story challenges stereotypes and prejudices while representing, destigmatizing and empowering diverse gender expression.
“This necessary documentary is exactly the positive representation we could all use right now.”
– Judy Bokao, Matthew’s Place,
A Program of the Matthew Shepard Foundation
“Remarkably woven together…Puts queer struggle into a global perspective.”
– B.L. Panther, The Spool
