Originally shown as part of the True Stories strand on More 4, this film travels to the glittering fantasy world of Las Vegas. Jeremy Stanford's Tears, Tiaras and Transsexuals is a no-holds-barred gander at the first-ever 'World's Most Beautiful Transsexual Pageant' and the six women who will finally realise their diva dreams. With the dramatic competition to win the crown and a starring role in a sensational new Vegas Revue as a high-stakes backdrop, the film explores the personal and moving stories of its contestants through provocative hometown profiles as well as interviews that document the often humorous journeys of the contestants. United by common histories of hardship and persecution (not to mention intricate finger-clicking), their ultimate triumph is a moving celebration of the human spirit.
