RuPaul’s Drag Race Hall of Famer, Trixie Mattel, has a new documentary currently doings its rounds in the film festival circuit. The Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts documentary is screening at Outfest Los Angeles LGBTQ Film Festival tonight. The 91-minute feature is playing at the Ford Theatres, located at 2580 Cahuenga Blvd E, in Los Angeles. Show starts at 8:30pm, on this Wednesday, July 24.
Out-of-the-box doesn’t begin to cover the multidimensional talents of internationally beloved drag queen Trixie Mattel: an invigorating folk singer, a bawdy comic with a penchant for the perverse, a crowned member of the RuPaul’s Drag Race Hall of Fame, and, of course, an iconic skinny legend. Like all the greats before her, Trixie hits the road with her one-woman show in this revealing look behind the scenes, featuring appearances from Katya, Bob the Drag Queen, and Jinkx Monsoon. It was written and directed by Nick Zeig-Owens, and premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 25, 2019.
Trixie Mattel competed in Season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, where she was eliminated in episode four and later reentered the competition in episode eight by winning the “Conjoined Twins” challenge with Pearl Liaison. She was once again eliminated in episode 10, placing sixth overall and becoming the first queen to last more than one episode after returning to the competition.
Mattel later returned for the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars, which first aired on January 25, 2018. She would come out on top thanks to the vote of her fellow competitors, which allowed her to advance to the final two, where she ultimately won against runner-up Kennedy Davenport in the final lipsync battle.
She also competed in the 2018 television special RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular and won alongside the other competitors.
Trixie has toured on the “Haters Roast: The Shady Tour” with other queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race, such as Jinkx Monsoon and Thorgy Thor for their 2017 and 2018 alumni tours.
In February 2018, she announced her new comedy tour “Now with Moving Parts”, which began in April 2018.
The documentary Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts documents Mattel as she embarks on her “Moving Parts” tour following her All Stars win, as well as her personal struggles.
