The world fell in love with BeBe Zahara Benet as the first-ever winner of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE, and now the legendary queen has even more to say


New York State Premiere.

BeBe Zahara Benet has been a show-stopping trailblazer ever since winning the very first season of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE. But even after two impressive showings on the Emmy-award winning reality competition, including an All Stars season, there’s still so much more to explore in her story.

Emily Branham’s feature directorial debut gives audiences an inside look into the motivations, challenges, and triumphs that pushed this icon from Cameroon to soaring new heights. Winner of the Audience Award at the Provincetown Film Festival, BEING BEBE is as triumphant and entertaining as the legend herself.

This film will be followed by a Q&A with Director Emily Branham and Marshall Kudi Ngwa aka BeBe Zahara Benet
