“Life’s a Drag” follows Rhode Island drag queens into the world of performance venues, entertaining social gatherings and intimate conversations about why we do the things we do. Sebastian uses the innovation of modern culture and the familiarity of a traditional society to convey a message that will open your eyes. In documenting this film Sebastian discovers the generosity of these drag queens and the important role they’ve played in raising funds and awareness for many charitable organizations, “I couldn’t think of a better way to follow their example then to give partial proceeds to such an important cause,” said Sebastian. The film includes a host of extreme characters including drag queens Sabrina Blaze (Wayne Hawkins), Kitty Litter (Stephen Hartley) BB Hays (Brian Laquerre) and La Diva Jonz (Gary Jacques). Discover one interpretation of tolerance, acceptance and the courage it takes to be okay with who you are.

Sebastian, a current board member of The Rhode Island Film Collaborative attended Rhode Island School of Design and in 2000 created Wutup Productions.
