Watch Together Online – Drag Documentaries

Watch Together Online – Drag Documentaries

Join me online to watch two short films with a LGBTQ+ theme. Drag is about empowerment, expression, activism, art, fashion and so much more. The documentaries we’ll be watching today explore the underground Muslim drag community in the UK and the life of a drag king from Edinburgh.

We’ll be using the video syncing website Watch2Gether for our viewing. I will share the link for the room just before we start.

Watch2Gether is a free sharing website that lets us quickly jump into synchronised viewing. No account or browser plugin required.

We can watch the video together in-sync while making comments in the chat window or by turning on audio/video chatting.

Meet Ali, a gay Pakistani asylum-seeker preparing for his first performance as a drag queen. Ali fled Pakistan, where he was persecuted for being gay, but now faces abuse from his neighbours in London. Mentored by Asifa Lahore, the UK’s first Muslim drag queen, Ali is determined to overcome his fears and express himself in a dance performance at the UK’s biggest ‘gaysian’ club night.

Anyone who’s anyone has probably seen a drag queen show. But how many people can say they’ve seen a drag king performance? Why aren’t the kings as prevalent as queens in the media and even on the scene? This documentary follows Eli Buck, Drag King of Edinburgh.
