Heklina is the founder and hostess of Trannyshack, currently San Francisco's longest-running drag show. Performing since 1996, she appears in local theater (Sex in the City, Golden Girls, Roseanne parodies) while producing and hosting a variety of events (Trannyshack, Daytime Realness, gay pride activities). From her early days growing up in Iceland, a discharge from the navy, overcoming drugs and alcohol, Heklina has emerged as one of the premiere performers in the alternative drag scene in San Francisco and beyond. This documentary takes you into the world of alternative drag through the perspective of one of its key players. But don't worry; this documentary intends to safely deliver you back out.
