Out at the Roxy celebrates the power and Pride of LGBTQ+ people by removing the door from the celluloid closet.

In 1968, Frank Simon's groundbreaking documentary THE QUEEN, about the 1967 Miss All-American Camp Beauty Pageant, introduced audiences to the world of competitive drag. The film takes viewers backstage with the contestants as they rehearse, compete, and transform into their drag personas in the lead-up to the big event. Organized by LGBTQ icon and activist Flawless Sabrina, the competition boasted a star-studded panel of judges including Andy Warhol, Larry Rivers, and Terry Southern.
