Drag is taking over the world.
If you consider the amount of likes a person has on their personal Facebook fan page, then RuPaul is officially now the world’s second most famous drag queen, having been ousted by Conchita by more than 245,000 page likes. (At the time this article was written, RuPaul clocked in at 585,196 page like and Conchita at 830,345 – an exact difference of 245,149)
Now, thanks to one very dedicated fan, you can watch the story of Conchita’s rise to fame in a fierce new documentary entitled ‘The Unstoppable Conchita Wurst.’ The 45-minute film was created by filmmaker Curtis Ryan Woodside and is a flawless compilation/synopsis of YouTube videos that collectively tell Conchita’s story.
The masterfully pieced together film follows Conchita from the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Denmark and her post-win performances around Europe to her modeling debut in Paris and beyond. It also touches on her future plans, including her highly anticipated debut album, and reveals some of the ways she plans to continue to be unstoppable.
