As society grapples with issues of transgender acceptance and understanding, ‘The Queens’ takes viewers out of the politics and onto the stage with an exclusive look inside the first beauty pageant to ever allow transgender female impersonators to participate. Using the 38-year-old Miss Continental pageant as its backdrop, ‘The Queens’ explores this complex and relatively unknown subculture of transgender life, and delves into the whys and hows and dangers of the physical alterations many competitors have made to their outer bodies (silicone injections, breast implants, facial reconstruction, etc.), their inner bodies (hormone therapies), and their decisions to refrain from following through with gender confirmation surgery.
