Being BeBe intimately charts 15 years in the life of drag performer Marshall Ngwa (aka BeBe Zahara Benet): An immigrant to America from homophobic Cameroon, first champion on Reality TV phenomenon RuPaul's Drag Race, and a leading artist celebrating Black Queer Excellence today. Marshall's emotional journey raises timely concerns at the intersection of LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and immigrant lives within the context of a hard-fought artist's journey toward success against all odds.

We are pleased to present the award winning documentary about the first crowned winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, Bebe Zahara Benet, direct by Emily Branham.

This event is proud to be co-presented by: GlobeDocs Film Festival , Boston Women's Film Festival
