Miss fame tells us about her journey, her being queer and transgender and her relationship with fashion and the catwalk and more, all captured in Pinned into a dress, a short documentary, masterfully created on her and for her by Gianluca Matarrese and Guillaume Thomas.

Pinned into a dress: 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 supermodel drag. A hypnosis session takes us on Kurtis/Miss Fame’s journey into their mind, exploring their salvatory yet torturous relationship to Pain and Beauty.
