Reviews

"An utterly fascinating, beautifully crafted exploration of the world of drag kings." - Variety

"A provocative travelogue through [an] unexplored frontier, a mixed-up, shook-up borderland where nothing, especially not an individual's gender, should be taken for granted." - TV Guide

"Offers considerable illumination on the lives of those who live and thrive along sexuality's margins." - Newsday

"Earnestly examines masculinity as a performance, demonstrating that biology is not destiny." - Village Voice

"[Baur] has clearly earned the trust and respect of her subjects, the first qualification for any responsible documentarist, and they have repaid her with an intimate glimpse into their singular lives." - The New York Times
