Dark comedy about two longtime friends and drag queens growing up and apart


New York Centerpiece

Besties by day and cabaret drag partners by night, two longtime pals find themselves at a crossroads when one of them couples off and moves away from New York. As the duo drifts apart, the remaining queen must reinvent himself or risk becoming an irrelevant solo act both onstage and off.

Reminiscent of the freewheeling spirit of FRANCES HA, this insightful comedy peels back the layers in the East Coast’s queer mecca triumvarate – New York City, Fire Island, and Provincetown – and examines the realities gay men face in their pursuit of love and acceptance. Director, writer, and star Todd Flaherty’s CHRISSY JUDY explores the very universal pain of breaking up with a best friend and asks the difficult question, “What do you do when your chosen family no longer chooses you?”

This film will be followed by a Q&A.
