I can honestly say i enjoyed watching the documentary “Paris is Burning”. I love it when people express themselves and love the way they are and the way they feel. I also noticed that hooks in her article began to talk about how the film portrayed so much “whiteness” even though it was about the lives of black male drag queens and how society viewed them. How they created these balls and competed against each other to determine who was the most fierce. But like one of the characters in the film said “They didnt want to look like lena horne, they mostly wanted to look like Marilyn monroe”. They wanted to follow the white womanhood. I felt the documenary didnt have a direct script. All you saw was a group of characters talking about themselves and what they did and thats about it.
