Rainbow Railroad is coming to San Francisco! We are co-presenting the San Francisco Bay Area premiere of “Being Bebe: The BeBe Zahara Benet Documentary” at the Roxie on March 31st, 2022, including an exclusive meet & greet with Bebe herself! We also have VIP tickets to an exclusive concert with Bebe on April 1st – AND you’re invited to BOTH!
Marshall Ngwa (a.k.a. renowned drag performer BeBe Zahara Benet) came to the United States from a homophobic Cameroon with dreams of a better life and became the first winner of the now-iconic reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2009.
With 15 years of intimate access to Marshall’s story, the film presents his unique love affair with a performance alongside his unstoppable sense of persistence and purpose, offering an unprecedented portrait of an artist who chooses to live a creative life against all odds.
|We invite you to join us for the premiere of the documentary co-presented by Executive Director Kimahli Powell, and the concert the following evening. As a key supporter of Rainbow Railroad, we are happy to provide you with a complimentary ticket to both the meet and greet with Bebe Zahara Benet as well as the screening of the documentary, and the concert the next day. Can only make one of these events? Don’t worry! Just let us know.|
