I was enthralled with this when I saw it last week - it was like the "missing footage" from PiB. Really amazing stuff; explains a lot and yet leaves you with more questions...It should be added to the extras on the DVD.

btw, I think it was "Pendavis" in the movie - pen-dah-vuss


I had never heard about this documentary til you had first posted about it a long time back. Now it's amoung my favorite docs and probably my favorite one about human beings and culture. I would've never imagined this being the focus of a daytime talk show, but now that i've seen it, it's just so perfect for early 90's Joan Rivers Show.


Thank you for this!


I remember this and the "club kids" episode with James St. James and Leigh Bowery from around the same time. Joan had awesome guests. Oddly enough, I'd never seen Paris Is Burning in its entirety until this year, about a month before season two of RuPaul's Drag Race. (I didn't have cable last year, so I still haven't seen all of season one.)


Oh my god, Rich, thank you so much for putting these all in one post. I am pretty much creaming my pants in excitement for when I get to go home and watch this. Paris is Burning changed my life.


Rich, you are giving me my life by posting this!

Paris Is Burning made me a better gay man and a better human being. It's in my top five favorite films of all time.


I was able to see Paris is Burning in my English 101 class this last semester (extended discussion of critical models on Heart of Darkness, blah blah blah @_@), but we had to cut it short at the last maybe 10 minutes. I loved the doc dearly. Thanks for sending us to this, I feel even more fulfilled.


Fantastic. Thanks so much for this. I'm looking forward to some pictures of Winston Labeija.


Rich I am hyperventilating right now.
Thank you so much for finding this.


was that Caroline Manzo from RHONJ at 6:47 in the first video?


Teeme - THANK YOU. She popped up twice, and I swore I was losing my mind. I even pulled up a current picture of her to compare. It MUST be...right?


i'm too late. the videos are private now :(

Wow,I am pretty much creaming my pants in excitement for when I get to go home and watch this. Thanks for sharing.

It is a fact that all gayer than just about anything you'd see on daytime TV today, 19 years later. It's a beautiful thing, but not more beautiful than Pepper LaBeija's outfit, which looks like Big Bird crossed with an entire stage production of The Wiz crossed with fierce.
