AJ and the Queen
AJ and the Queen follows a runaway drag queen and a stowaway child on a road trip across America, and it is a heady concoction, shot with such dedication to soft focus and flattering lighting you’d be forgiven for attempting to wipe the screen. RuPaul is Ruby Red, a tough, old-time New York club queen who has saved up $100,000 – Drag Race viewers may find it difficult to watch RuPaul saying “$100,000” with a straight face – in order to give up the night job and set up his own drag club. But his David Gandy-esque boyfriend, so model-handsome that he simply must be evil, has other ideas and makes away with the cash, leaving Ruby Red to try to scrape some of it back on a last-minute drag tour of small-town USA.
