More than 40 years before “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” the groundbreaking documentary “The Queen” – about the 1967 Miss All-American Camp Beauty Pageant – introduced audiences to the world of competitive drag. 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. But perhaps most memorable is an epic diatribe calling out the pageant’s bias delivered by Crystal LaBeija. The film screens tonight.
