[Video] ‘Drag Race’ winner Tyra Sanchez, gay filmmaker work toward new documentary

Tyra Sanchez of Atlanta, winner of "RuPaul's Drag Race" season two, is hoping you'll remember her name for reasons beyond her reality TV triumph. She's teamed up with gay filmmaker Björn Flóki to make a documentary called "Drag Dad" about balancing life as a drag superstar on stage and a single parent off.

During the "Drag Race" season that ran February through April 2010, rumors of Sanchez's life before the show littered the internet, some of which were true: James Ross, his real name, was homeless at 17. During the first week of his senior year of high school, when he "wasn't gay," he had a son, Jeremiah, with his best friend.The couple mutually agreed Ross would take custody.
