Pinned into a Dress

Growing up silently queer, within a broken family, Kurtis faced abuse, trauma and addiction. Eventually unveiling places beyond his wildest dreams he created his alter-ego, Miss Fame, becoming one of the world’s most iconic supermodels of drag. (Settimana Internazionale della Critica)
