Whitney Skauge’s Documentary Work Acts as an Extension of their Social and Political Activism

Their debut short documentary, The Beauty President (2021), highlights the historic 1992 bid for the White House of Terence Smith’s drag persona Joan Jett Blakk as one of the first openly queer write-in candidates.
