As part of their Truly CA series, KQED has just shared this documentary short about San Francisco drag star and Oasis co-owner Heklina. It's a little odd, with a Bergman-esque opening sequence involving a mirror in the middle of some sand dunes, but it's nonetheless a fun profile of the man beneath the wig. Much of this footage appears to be a couple years old, since before Oasis opened and back when Trannyshack was still called Trannyshack but filmmaker Brian Favorite takes us through the course of Heklina's life and drag career in a few short minutes.
As she puts it, "Heklina is not a woman. Heklina is me in drag. I don't think anybody looks at Heklina as a woman."
