Drag Kids, the acclaimed feature-length documentary from Megan Wennberg, will enjoy its television premiere on CBC’s long-standing documentary brand CBC Docs POV on July 25.

Produced by Tell Tale Productions in partnership with CBC Docs POV, the 80-minute film (pictured) traces the lives of four gender-bending youth as they come together to meet like-minded peers in Montreal, Quebec, for a group performance at Pride Montreal while capturing the importance of family and the unbreakable bonds of friendship.

Featured throughout the film will be 12-year-old Bracken, 12-year-old Jason AKA Suzan Bee Anthony, 10-year-old Nemis AKA Queen Lactatia and 10-year-old Stephen AKA Laddy Gaga.

Drag Kids, which enjoyed its world premiere at the 2019 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, took home the Best Canadian Feature Award at LGBT film festival Inside Out Festival.

Drag Kids will host its television debut on July 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT across CBC Docs POV on CBC.

The film will also be made available via the CBC Gem streaming service, and will additionally air on July 28 at 6 p.m. ET/PT on the CBC News Network.

“The Drag Kids are trailblazers, and through their passionate commitment to being themselves, they have a lot to teach us about ourselves,” said director Wennberg in a statement. “Sharing this film with audiences at Hot Docs and Inside Out has been an incredible experience, and we are excited to share it with the rest of the country on CBC and CBC Gem.”
