Part "Paris is Burning," part "RuPaul's Drag Race" and part Miss America, "The Queens" explores the transgender subculture of competitive female impersonation. Along the way, this feature-length documentary delves into the fascinating history of Chicago's iconic female impersonation show lounge, The Baton, and its legendary offspring, the Miss Continental beauty pageant. The entertainers immersed in this community share the highs and lows of their lives as they compete for the coveted crown.
