Bob the Drag Queen revealed he’s secretly been filming a documentary detailing her journey from pre-Drag Race queen to season 8 winner in a new video uploaded to the crowdfunding site Seed & Spark.
In it, Bob asks fans to help fund her dream of producing the film, “a stand-up comedy documentary” called “A Queen for the People.”
“You get to meet my family, you get to meet my friends, you get to learn my process, and you get to know what it’s like to go on the journey of going from working six nights a week to going on RuPaul’s Drag Race to traveling the world,” Bob says of the film.
The project’s description reads:
“They say no one can make it anywhere as a drag queen. But, Bob the Drag Queen sashayed into the national spotlight (purse first, of course) on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 8. Now, she’s off to take the stand up world by storm. Help Bob make her first stand up special. Not only will you see her show at the Gramercy Theater in New York, you also go inside Bob’s world. Who are her friends? What makes her tick? How’s her Mom doing? Does she enter the room purse first?
Want more reads? More shade? More purse? Tip your Queen!”
To complete the film, Bob is asking for $70,000 to pay for things like make-up, costumes, music licensing, travel, legal services and marketing expenses. At time of posting, Bob raised just over $11,000 with 14 days left to go.
