Vivica A. Fox chats with Director Whitney Skauge about her latest film, The Beauty President, that had its world premiere at 2021 SXSW film festival.

Coming to the 2021 SXSW film festival is the short documentary The Beauty President directed by Whitney Skauge. The Beauty President asks the question, “If a bad actor can be president, why not a good drag queen?” In 1992, Joan Jett Blakk made a historic bid for the White House as an openly queer write-in candidate. Today, Terence Smith, the man behind the persona, reflects back on his place in gay rights history at the height of the AIDS crisis.
