Oregon Premiere 

Love, faith, and civil rights collide in a small town in Arkansas “40 min away from Branson.” Evangelical Christians and drag queens step into the spotlight to dismantle stereotypes in a distinctly American way. The film takes a personal, often comical look at negotiating differences between religion and belief through performance, political action, and partnership. Gospel drag shows and a year-round passion play set the stage for one hell of a show. In the end, most of the townspeople who seem to be complete opposites turn out to be much the same, showing tolerance and acceptance unusual in today’s political climate. By continually emphasizing the overlap of faith and love in this little tourist town, the film gives a tiny ray of hope about the nature of humanity. Narrated by Mx Justin Vivian Bond.
