Bianca Del Rio has used her status as a winner of Rupaul’s Drag Race to go on to bigger and better things, and that includes starring in her own star-studded movie, Hurricane Bianca. Now the trailer has arrived, having debuted over at Buzzfeed.
Things are a little bit Tootsie, with Bianca’s non-drag persona Roy Haylock starring as a teacher in Texas, who gets fired when it’s discovered he has a gay dating profile. It’s then time for a bit of revenge, with Roy returning to the school as the outrageous Bianca, who’s out to wreak a little havoc.
The great cast also includes Rachel Dratch, Alan Cumming, RuPaul, Margaret Cho, and Drag Race’s Willam Belli, Shangela, and Alyssa Edwards. There’ll be three special US cinemas screenings of the film in New York on Sept. 19th, San Fransisco on Sept. 20th , and LA on Sept. 21, followed by a Q&A with Bianca and director Matt Kugelman. It’ll then receive a worldwide digital release via Wolfe On Demand on September 23rd, and a US DVD release in October.
