About the film:
Drag Becomes Him provides an intimate glimpse inside the life of internationally acclaimed drag performer Jinkx Monsoon. This raw and affectionate film follows the passionate pursuits that transformed a working class boy in a struggling family to an illustrious performer on a global stage.
Influenced by a grandmother with charm school polish, Jerick Hoffer learned to fuse the sophistication of a southern belle with the crass behavior of a working girl. Jinkx Monsoon has what RuPaul describes as "a stage left, off center kind of quality."
Drag Becomes Him follows Jinkx's trajectory from a small stage in Portland, Oregon through a growing career in Seattle to the relinquishing of the crown one year after winning RuPaul's Drag Race.
Expanded from the acclaimed five-part web series of the same name, this cherished portrayal of Jinkx Monsoon peels back the layers on one of the brightest stars on the drag circuit.

Jerick Hoffer (aka Jinkx Monsoon) is a seasoned Portland-born entertainer and graduate of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

By 2012, he had advanced to roles in Seattle theatres, playing Moritz in Spring Awakening (Balagan Theatre) and Angel in RENT (5th Avenue Theatre). After starring in the critically acclaimed original run of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Balagan Theatre / Seattle Theatre Group), Hoffer's winning run on RuPaul's Drag Race began airing on LOGOtv. As "America's next drag superstar," Hoffer has performed for adoring fans across the country and around the world. His first full-length studio album, 'The Inevitable Album" is available on iTunes. Jerick also created "The Vaudevillians" with Cornish classmate Richard Andriessen and the two have performed as duo "Kitty Witless" and "Dr. Dan Von Dandy" in the surreal, genre bending show to sold out audiences around the world including New York City, Provincetown, Europe, Australia and several ships at sea.
