Which LGBT Icon Deserves a Biopic?


JULY 09 2014

The Advocate asked the filmmakers at Outfest who their fantasy LGBT film subject might be — as well as who they would cast as the lead.


Alec Mapa, played by Honey Boo Boo

“I’d make Talented Colon The Alec Mapa Story, with the word ‘colon’ spelled out, not the punctuation mark. Alec is the Pinoy Le Pétomane. It would star Honey Boo Boo as young Alec and use repurposed clips from Weng Weng films for Alec’s later life.”

—Andrea James is a self-described “tranny filmmaker and activist.” She is the director of Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy.
