1995 comedy about a trio of {{Drag Queen}}s on a road trip to compete in a national pageant. If this sounds familiar at all, that's because ''Film/TheAdventuresOfPriscillaQueenOfTheDesert'' was released in the previous year, with a similar premise and equally-unwieldy name. However, while ''Priscilla'' was steeped in realism, ''To Wong Foo'' opts for the RuleOfFunny. That is, we never see the men out of drag even though they're not {{transsexual}} (female pronouns are used for the sake of convenience), and the people they encounter don't know they're men at first.

* AsYouKnow: Noxie gives a quick rundown of different [[{{Transsexual}} genderqueer]] types, which Chi-Chi already knows for the most part, before getting to the point that Chi-Chi not yet a drag queen but a mere "boy in a dress".

* AttractiveBentGender: Sheriff Dollard is beguiled by Vida (at first), and Chi Chi manages to woo Bobby Ray. Admittedly, Creator/JohnLeguizamo makes a ''very'' convincing woman, as does Swayze.

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: In an attempt to keep Chi-Chi from running away after being deemed a "boy in a dress", Vida says that she's not quite a Drag Queen...she's a Drag Princess.

* StrawberryShorthand: The town's distinguishing tradition (and one of the things that perks the trio up) is their Strawberry Social -- "We all bake strawberry pies and bring them to the center of town, then we eat the pies...[[AntiClimax and then we go home]]." The queens convince them to go all out and try and range of strawberry themes and dress in glorious bright red.

* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Sheriff Dollard reacts in the worst possible way when he finds out Vida is a man, but the townsfolk...not so much. They're fooled but eventually figure it out on their own, and accept the girls all the same.
