Club King
Jon Bush (US, 2014, 70 min) For the last 20 years, club kingpin Mario Diaz has been throwing the hottest, sexiest, and most fun parties in the LGBT nightlife scene from New York to LA. CLUB KING goes behind the scenes to find out what makes him tick and how he pulls off parties like Hot Dog and Full Frontal Disco. Personal reflections from Diaz himself illuminate his charismatic character, augmented by interviews with some of the hottest queens, go go boys, and stars of the scene, including Jackie Beat, as well as singer and trans activist Justin Vivian Bond. Showing with Short: CHERRY POP (Assaad Yacoub, US, 2013, 16 min) Lauren Ordair, the headliner of Cherry Pop, a weekly drag show, threatens not to show up for her final performance and all hell breaks loose backstage.
