Chris Moukarbel's celebration of New York drag culture, the personalities and performances, this is the the inspiring history of Wigstock.

From an impromptu performance for no one in particular in Tompkins Square Park Bandshell in 1984, to the DIY community festival that became a mecca for performers, who ‘dragged’ the art form from counterculture to the mainstream we see today, Wig is the inspiring history of Wigstock. Not settling on being just another glossy accolade, this documentary isn’t afraid to throw some shade in bringing this inter-generational story to life, with a close look at how these queens influence queerness, art, and identity today.
