Phoenix Center presents The Boy Who Would Become A Queen: The Legacy of Miss Mahogany Knight

April 6 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The Boy Who Would Become a Queen
Don’t miss this amazing 90 minute documentary of the life of Springfield’s own Miss Mahogany Knight. Hilarious. Heartfelt, Human. Those are just a few attributes that describe one of the premiere drag performers in Central IL. Who lies behind the makeup and ornate dresses is Dean Myrick, a man who inspires others through tragedy and triumph. This documentary chronicles his life, chosen and real family, and fight for expression in the face of legislative oppression toward the drag community on a national scale.
This event is a “donation suggested” event of $10.
