Behind The Kiki: The Making of ‘Hey Qween’

‘Dedicated to the memory of an angel, Lady Red Couture’

New Documentary shows the personal side of creating queer content, and the friendship that fuelled it.

Known as ‘the gayest talk show of all time’, Hey Qween has been the premiere show for LGBTQ stars to tell their story for 8 seasons. Hosted by Jonny McGovern and Lady Red Couture, the show began on Youtube, and has played on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and internationally on OUTTV.

Tragically, Lady Red Couture, a trans drag veteran, unexpectedly passed away this past August. The outpouring of Love from around the world was overwhelming, with Lady Red trending on Twitter tree and written up in the New York Times.

In 2018, cameras were allowed to film behind the scenes of the making of the Hey Qween and Hot T Holiday specials, this footage had never been before seen.

Jonny McGovern, in his grieving process for Lady Red, rediscovered this footage, which showed so much of the process of making the show, the fun, the struggle, the glamour, and especially showcased Lady Red’s unstoppable spirit, that he knew he had to complete the project.

This intimate, behind the scenes documentary, shows what it takes to make Hey Qween, how it started, and the love and friendship that fuelled it. Dedicated to the memory of an angel, Lady Red Couture.
