LOS ANGELES — Blue Oyster Pictures' "Dressed as a Girl," a British documentary on East London's drag scene, will be featured at RuPaul's DragCon at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Sat., May 7 at 4 p.m. Colin Rothbart, the film's director, will be present.

"I didn't want this doc to just be a puff piece," said Rothbart, who is based in London. "It had to be a film full of universal truths: love, desire, insecurity, ambition, community, personal demons, family and familiar life experiences. And anyone who knows me knows I'm prepared to ask the difficult questions to get to the heart of the matter."

The drag performers featured in "Dressed as Girl" include Holestar, Amber, Pia, Scottee and Jonny Woo.

"People misunderstand drag performers as seemingly superficial drama queens, but they often have something important to say and aren't afraid to say it," Rothbart said. "Let's not forget that the Stonewall riots were started by drag queens and trans people. While performance is a huge part of these people's lives, I wanted to find stories that everyone could relate to, diving beneath the wit and banter to unveil the human side behind the glitter spray of East London's vibrant alternative drag scene."

DragCon, a convention for drag performers, will begin on May 7 and continue on Sun., May 8.
