The government may have clamped down on transsexuals, but the gender benders are back with a vengeance.

We find Singapore's most outrageous drag queen, Kumar.With slender hips wrapped in sequin pants, he/she welcomes the audience to the night club Boom Boom Room. During the day, dressed in jeans, Kumar is more cautious, "I have to make sure I don't go overboard because I don't want to get deported". At lunch, we meet his two friends who have both had sex change operations. The sleek and shiny Yasmeen admits to spending one hour each morning putting on make up. At night Kumar is back on stage strutting his stuff to 'I will Survive'. Men and women in the audience are not so sure and look round to check for police. But in false lashes and scarlet lipstick, Kumar is defiant of censorship. Quirky feature on swinging Singaporeans who push back the boundaries...
