About this show

Meet Ms. Joan Jett Blakk as she sets off on her journey to run for president of the United States. Inspired by the true story of America's first black drag queen presidential candidate, Joan's story begins in Chicago; it's 1992, and with the AIDS crisis at its height, Joan and the newly formed Queer Nation Chicago have big goals. Joan sets off on an exhilarating and dangerous journey to drag queer politics out of the closet and into a future where all are visible and have a place at the table. Part campaign rally, part nightclub performance, part confessional, and all party, Ms. Blakk for President takes audience members into the heart and mind of one of Chicago's most radical and influential citizens.
