Out in the World: Cameroonian 'Drag Race' star hopes film inspires
Cameroon-born performance artist and "RuPaul's Drag Race" Season #1 winner BeBe Zahara Benet believes in the power of drag."Drag is having its moment in pop culture right now, but it won't last forever," said Benet. "This type of representation matters immensely.""Visibility is so crucial," she said, from things like drag storytime to the Emmy Award-winning "RuPaul's Drag Race."She hopes that the award-winning documentary, "Being BeBe", her music, and live and video performances "pushes the needle forward in opening eyes, hearts, and minds" in Africa and wakes the West up and activate people to "help liberate others.""Being BeBe" debuted on Fuse June 21 in the United States and on OUTtv in Canada.
