drag-king pirate movie
for gender-benders, drag-kings and those who adore them
With a fistful of fetish in every frame, Girl King delivers a sexy, gender-bending swashbuckler on the high seas. Pirates capture a naïve Butch and promise him that if he can find the Queen’s stolen treasure, they will be give him his heart’s desire – the seductive femme Claudia. Soon Butch is sailing on treacherous seas, swept away by dangerous desires where tops are bottomed, pirate captains are seduced by tranny sailors and cross-dressing femmes pack a wallop. With the help of the mysterious Easy and the infamous pirate Captain Candy, can Butch find the treasure in time to restore the natural attraction between butch and femme?
Decidedly tongue-in-cheek, this clever tale uses a stylish pastiche of ‘pirated’ images to lead us into the uncharted oceans of dyke desire and queer identity. A sweetly perverse fable for our gender-fucked times.
Soundtrack by Amon Tobin.
