“With an engrossing lens on Muffy and the people she loves, QUEEN OF THE CAPITAL is genuinely poignant, gleeful, and honest.” - Film Threat

Josh Davidsburg’s vivacious and inspiring documentary follows Muffy Blake Stephyns, a drag performer with high aspirations. Muffy and her everyday persona, Daniel, navigate the drag and bureaucratic worlds of Washington, D.C., while following her dream to lead a colorful group of philanthropic drag performers. Using skills from a former life as a campaign consultant, she runs for Empress of the Imperial Court of Washington, D.C.

“A compelling narrative through the caring lens it shines on the nature of drag to bring people together.” - Ian Thomas Malone
