Because TV is too small for her
nose talent, RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bianca del Rio is making her feature film debut in the acclaimed comedy Hurricane Bianca, coming to DVD and VOD on September 23.
In it, she plays a gay man fired from his job in small-town Texas school, who returns as a sass-mouth “lady” to teach the children well—and have her revenge.
The film includes a bevy of gay faves—including Rachel Dratch, Alan Cumming, Margaret Cho, Willam Belli, Shangela, Alyssa Edwards and RuPaul himself.
Watch the first trailer for Hurricane Bianca below.
To celebrate its release, a special Hurricane Bianca premiere screening is being in New York on Monday, September 19. Additional screenings follow in San Francisco on September 20 and Los Angeles on September 21. (Both Bianca and writer-director Matt Kugelman will be on hand for post-screening Q&As.)
“There’s an amazing history of drag-in-the-desert films and I couldn’t be more excited to add Hurricane Bianca to that prestigious group,” Bianca, a.k.a. Roy Haylock, told NewNowNext. “This is gonna be the gayest tour ever!”
“No matter where in the world you are, you’ll be able to see the movie on September 23,” the Season 6 champion added. “As long as you have access to wifi—I’m not dropping it off in your hut in Guatemala, so don’t get any ideas!”
Don’t ever change, girl.
