The Last Gospel of the Pagan Babies: A Queer Southern Story
",,,unveils the story of an underground queer, artist, gender bending sexual outlaw community dating back to the time of the American Civil War. In the 1960s, the Old World gay scene was changing. The Pagan Babies, a loosely connected group of artists and drag queens set out to challenge this conservative, Southern gay society with guerrilla theater interventions, outlandish costumes and behavior. This 150-year-old lineage has been held together through intergenerational storytelling, photography, personal artifacts (scrapbooks), films, and early video. Told through the voices of drag queens and artists Bob Morgan and Bradley Picklesimer, the film takes us on a journey into the deep south, unearthing little known characters and heroes from gay history and mythology: from the cross-dressing civil war guerilla soldier, Sue Mundy; Sweet Evening Breeze, a black drag queen born in the 1880s, infamous madam Belle Brezing, Henry Faulkner artist and long-time friend of Tennessee Williams whose early homoerotic photo documentation are housed at the Kinsey Institute; to Lee Majors and Rock Hudson- who once owned the only gay bar in town."
