TWIST 2018: Heklina, Mapplethorpe and The Imperial Court


DRH_Poster_1400x2100_72dpiHere are MORE fun options for films to check out in the next few days at TWIST: Seattle Queer Film Festival which runs through Sunday, October 21st, including a Robert Mapplethorpe biopic starring Matt Smith from Dr. Who and The Crown, as well as a documentary about the Imperial Court System which originated in San Francisco (and you can expect most of the area Courts to be attendance at this screening….)

There’s also a video document of the infamous roast of legendary San Franciscan drag diva HEKLINA, that is screening this Friday, October 19th at AMC Pacific Place, downtown Seattle at 9:15pm. It’s gonna be a FOUL mouthed, VERY non-PC evening of nasty insults so if that’s NOT your thing…well, don’t go!! The lovely Ms Heklina will be in attendance (byotch would show up to the opening of an envelope….stuffed full of pie and cocaine!!!!) (See, what I just did there? ROASTING!!!!) and the film features a Who’s Who and a What’s What of drag legends including hags like Julie Brown (the one who is NOT Downtown), Peaches Christ, Sister Roma, and RPDR stars like Bob the Drag Queen, Alaska Thunderfuck and Jinkx Monsoon.

Snag tickets for the Heklina roast HERE!!!!

NOTE: I’m asking around to see if this screening has an after party (I mean, it’s a drag queen film!) but I’m not finding any so far!
