We have been fortunate enough to document Pep's struggles and triumphs from before she found international acclaim on Rupaul's Drag Race. Over the past year, we filmed over 100 hours of footage and interviews with Peppermint, her close friends and celebrities such as Lavern Cox, Cazwell, Trace Lysette ("Transparent"), Bob The Drag Queen, and others.
We spent countless hours with her as she traveled across the country and to Europe, filming her everyday interactions that form a full picture of the life of Peppermint interacting with her fans, her doctors, and the people who know her best. The project has been self-financed from the moment we started filming.
We were passionate about telling this story, and couldn't waste any time finding financing without missing out on filming crucial events. For the sake of keeping the documentary as true to reality as possible, we refused any financial donations from Peppermint herself.
