RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A documentary on Donnie “Dirt Woman” Corker will be showing at a Richmond theater.

Corker was an outrageous, vibrant, controversial, outspoken and Richmond’s legendary drag queen who had a way of stealing headlines.

Donnie grew up in Oregon Hill. In his youth, he walked the streets as a prostitute. He cross-dressed, eventually becoming the humorous and self-deprecating drag queen Dirt Woman. Back in the day, Donnie was one of the few outspoken members of the LGBT community.

The documentary “Spider Mites of Jesus: The Dirtwoman Documentary” is coming to Movieland for an extended run on Jan. 24.

The film was written and directed by Jerry Williams.
