Pussy Noir, or Jason Barnes, has been a drag performer in the Nation’s Capital for several decades. A classically trained artist, the majority of Mx. Noir’s professional background is in theater and fashion design. The film follows Pussy Noir’s historic fellowship at the Kennedy Center where she has sought to elevate drag onto one of the biggest stages in the region. As Pussy Noir blends history, queerness, and couture into a queer fashion show, can she make her ideas sing on the catwalk?
