Elite Manhattan drag queens Vida Boheme (Patrick Swayze) and Noxeema Jackson (Wesley Snipes) impress regional judges in competition, securing berths in the Nationals in Los Angeles. When the two meet pathetic drag novice Chi-Chi Rodriguez (John Alberto Leguizamo) — one of the losers that evening — the charmed Vida and Noxeema agree to take the hopeless youngster under their joined wing. Soon the three set off on a madcap road trip across America and struggle to make it to Los Angeles in time.
“To Wong Foo marks a watershed moment in queer representation on screen. The film’s language and understanding of gender variance is undoubtedly limited as a product of its time. But it’s held a recipe with enduring appeal with mainstream audiences and drag devotees alike, partly because it’s dripping in camp and artifice in every frame.”—Them.us
