@TIME — @Sasha_Velour's #NightGowns On @Quibi Is “…Transgressive, Beautiful” ; #DragRace #Winner #LGBT

We watched every new show on Quibi. Here's what to watch—and what to skip.

The new platform offers short-form content designed to be watched on your phone, from Chrissy Teigen's take on 'Judge Judy' to cooking shows.

Lately it seems like everyone who’s ever come within 10 feet of RuPaul’s stage is getting their own show, but don’t hold the deluge of drag content against Sasha Velour, a Drag Race winner who stands out even from that talented pack. While her gender-fluid performances can be transgressive, Velour, who takes a big-tent approach to drag, has a heart of gold. As she adapts her Brooklyn-born revue NightGowns for a bigger stage, this docuseries profiles the queen and an inclusive troupe that features performers with a wide range of identities and styles. Each episode of the show—the only Quibi title I screened that feels particularly suited to the medium—ends with a beautifully shot production number that does Velour proud. —Judy Berman
