‘Drag Dad,’ Documentary Explores Being A Drag Queen & Father, Features Tyra Sanchez (TRAILER)


From the moment Tyra Sanchez pranced into our homes via RuPaul’s Drag Race, the drag queen has always been open about his life at home. Drag Dad is an independent documentary project about a six year old Jeremiah and his father, Tyra Sanchez. In 2010, he won the popular reality show, propelling Tyra and her creator James into stardom.

James William Ross, IV (aka Tyra Sanchez) has teamed up with filmaker Björn Flóki to tell his story about teenage fatherhood, being homeless and balancing his career with being a father. According to the teasers, the film captures 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?

    I believe that this film has the potential to enlighten the world and LGBT community in regards to parenthood, and to break biased and ignorant stereotypes of black gay men. The trailer, though one minute, draws you into the storyline and captures the essence of both Tyra and James. I’m beyond interested in the progression of this project and excited for its’ premiere.
