Ms. Blakk for President
About Ms. Blakk for President
Meet America’s first drag queen presidential candidate, Ms. Joan Jett Blakk, as she announces her bid to run for President of the United States. It’s Chicago, 1992, and with the AIDS crisis at its height, Joan and the newly formed Queer Nation Chicago have an urgent agenda: to drag queer politics out of the closet and into a future where all are visible and have a place at the table. Inspired by true events and infused with music and hilarity, "Ms. Blakk for President" is part campaign rally, part nightclub performance, part confessional—and all party!
