Transformistas tells the story of how against all odds a group of drag queens carved out a space for the LBGTQ community in Cuba at a time when performing in drag was illegal and homosexuality was denounced as a product of capitalism. Behind the make-up and beneath the wigs and fabulous outfits, we meet the Cubans who have sacrificed everything for their art, defying the status quo and rewriting LGBT history in the process. With wit, humor and lots of sass, Transformistas is a story of sacrifice, resilience and commitment to the art form of drag.
