The Story

They say no one can make it anywhere as a drag queen. But, Bob the Drag Queen sashayed into the national spotlight (purse first, of course) on RuPaul's Drag Race, Season 8. Now, she's off to take the stand up world by storm. Help Bob make her first stand up special. Not only will you see her show at the Gramercy Theater in New York, you also go inside Bob's world. Who are her friends? What makes her tick? How's her Mom doing? Does she enter the room purse first?

Cheyenne Picardo (Shooter/Editor) Cheyenne Picardo received her BA in Film Studies and Creative Writing from Columbia College, determine to be a film critic and theorist. Then she fell in love with editing and documenting self-described freaks of the New York performance scene, eventually earning her MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in 2011. Just before grad school, Picardo took the job that inspired her first feature film REMEDY, that of a pro-switch (dominatrix/submissive) at a commercial dungeon in New York City. Her focus recently has been using subjective storytelling techniques to explore sexuality, gender, mental health, memory, and marginalization. She hopes to harness the power of the mass-media’s influence over culture to destroy outdated and dangerous tropes. In short, she is committed as a filmmaker and film educator to dismantling the destructive legacy of the Hays Code, one frame at a time.
