For the first time ever, there’s Oscar buzz surrounding transgender actresses Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, for their amazing portrayals of two best friends working the streets of Los Angeles in the independent film Tangerine.

Today, San Francisco drag icon Peaches Christ joins us to take a look at some of our favorite movies featuring sex workers— strippers, gigolos, prostitutes and all those who work hard for the money, so you better treat them right


  1. I am not sure why it’s called Tangerine either, but the cab driver had an air freshener hanging from his rear-view mirror that was tangerine…

    • OMG that’s so tangential! lol

      (Tangential: hardly touching a matter; peripheral.)

      Great observation, Tim!
      I had the same question, googled it, and almost went loca finding it. I gave up and searched for the script instead… and then word-searched the freakin’ script — I was determined! Was it the sky? A drag queen? A street?…

      The best I found was in a copy of the script I downloaded, p. 35…

      Alexandra hops back in and hands him the gift — a tangerine scented air freshener.”

      So, I’m with you, Tim!

  2. Damn, Peaches’ upcoming show sounds amazing. I wish I didn’t live so far! Either way, I guess I’ll be giving Tangerine a shot soon.
