Gay parents have been in the news a lot but Drag Dad, a new documentary by gay filmmaker Björn Flóki, presents a different kind of family: RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Tyra Sanchez, a.k.a James, and his 6-year-old son, Jeremiah.
We want to give audiences an in-depth look into the domestic life of one LGBT family, offering a rather “extreme” representation of a gay parent, to show that gay parents are not so different from “regular parents” when it comes to raising a child. Love and dedication to your child defies all labels. We have seen James and Jeremiah together, and the sweet nature of their relationship. We want to bring that relationship to the screen, and show that there is no one correct recipe for a good father.
The makers of Drag Dad have started a Kickstarter campaign that expires on July 27, and they’re only about $300 shy of their $16,000 goal.
