Experiencing Interruptions?

Chrissy Judy

Every gay man needs a good Judy, but when his best friend and creative partner suddenly couples off and moves away, an ambitious New York drag queen determined for the limelight must reinvent himself or risk becoming an irrelevant solo act both onstage and off.

In this dark comedy, "Chrissy Judy" explores the universal pain of breaking up with a best friend and asks "What do you do when your chosen family no longer chooses you?" Glimpse into the underbelly of queer culture and examine the struggles and triumphs gay men face in their pursuit of love, acceptance, romance, and identity.

Director Statement

At the heart of "Chrissy Judy" is an immensely personal story about losing a best friend and discovering yourself in the process. Every gay man needs a good Judy--that friend who strangers ask, "Why aren't you two together?" I'm touched by how many people have read the script or seen the film and instantly relate to the universal themes of love, loss, and friendship; gay, straight or otherwise.

Four very challenging years in the making, "Chrissy Judy" has come to life, thanks in large part to my brother's sage advice to not wait until everything is perfect, but make my vision happen with the resources I have. With his help, a crew of three multi-talented creatives, a budget of only $20,000 and the generous community supporters, I am so proud of the film we've brought into the world. It's perfect in its imperfection, just like our Judy.
