Beautiful by Night
- Director: James Hosking
- Producer: James Hosking; Jeremy Lybarger
The changing face of the gay community...through the watery eyes of three elderly drag Queens...
Once upon a time, the Tenderloin was cheek by jowl gay bars - now, there is only one rather tatty remnant: Aunt Charlie's Lounge.
Some would say depressing, others - of a certain age - will find it sad...it's an ode to days gone by.
A touching film...for those who remember...
Are we facing the last days of drag?
