This camp classic, which was featured in our list of 10 Great Gay Movies, stars legendary drag performers Evie Harris, Coco Peru and Varla Jean Merman (a/k/a Jack Plotnick, Clinton Leupp and Jeffery Roberson) as the most unlikely roommates who ever stepped foot in Hollywood! Evie’s a fading star desperate for a comeback, Varla’s a fresh-off-the-bus asipring starlet, and Coco is searching for the doctor of her dreams. Along the way, there’s tragedy, betrayal and bicentennial decor! (Catch this cult classic now, there’s a sequel currently in production!) This movie is part of the Drag History Weekend Extravaganza, beginning Saturday, January 22nd at 11am. In addition to Girls, you can also catch up on the past two seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race and reacquaint yourself with the fabulous fal-culty of RuPaul’s Drag U!
