What's a Girl Like You...
  • Year1969
  • Duration52 min

Charlie Squires’ scintillating documentary investigates the late-'60s drag renaissance at one of Britain's oldest surviving gay venues – south London's Royal Vauxhall Tavern, aka the "Palladium of Drag" – before heading up north to meet more anarchic queens on Manchester's working men's club circuit. Peppered with vox-pops and backstage bon mots, this is a valuable and timely rediscovery.

This 1960s drag double-bill offers a sneak preview of the BFI’s LGBT50 project which includes a two-month BFI Southbank season, and a collection of newly digitised archive Film and TV made available on BFI Player.
