Growing up silently Queer, within a broken family, Kurtis faced abuse, trauma and addiction. As an escape, he discovered Beauty within his rural upbringing.
Eventually unveiling places beyond his wildest dreams, he created his alter-ego, Miss Fame, becoming one of the world’s most iconic drag supermodel. A hypnosis session takes us on Kurtis/Miss Fame’s journey into their mind, exploring their salvatory yet torturous relationship to Pain and Beauty.
