Synopsis

‘Behind the gay nightlife queen who picked up where Warhol left off.’
– Indiewire

MELBOURNE PREMIERE

A star-studded, behind-the-curtains look at underground NYC club promoter Susanne Bartsch who, along with her club kids entourage, hosted some of the hottest parties in New York City to rightly claim the title ‘Queen of the Night’. Over four decades, Bartsch has lived out her unique existence and dragged the world’s queers along for the ride. But don’t let the big names fool you: RuPaul, Amanda Lepore and Kenny Kenny are only nightwear. This documentary gets fascinatingly domestic (or as domestic as you can get in the the legendary Chelsea Hotel), proving fabulousness isn’t something you can take off.
