A Drag Queen for Kids follows Dito Van Reigersberg and his alter ego, Martha Graham Cracker, as they prepare for and perform their show for kids Martha Graham Cracker Meets Dr. Seuss. Jokes are reshaped, songs carefully altered, innuendos abound. Putting the lie to assumptions about drag and children, this short film shows that what makes a drag queen powerful – and dangerous – isn’t her clothes, it’s her empathy.
