In a flashback, an 'uncle' tries to sexually assault a child while in the bathtub but the boy gets revenge on him and is seen laughing about this as an adult. One of the other characters, a trans woman, has a flashback to her childhood where she was still treated like a boy and mentions how her parents never spoke to her again after gender affirming surgery, so the assumption is she didn't have a happy childhood.

One of the main characters finds some pills in the luggage of another main character. He isn't shown taking them but his behaviour afterwards is attributed to taking drugs. Also a main character takes hormones and is shown with a cereal bowl full of them.

Spoiler ahead:
Yes, there is a childhood flashback in which a child is cohered into preforming sexual acts by an adult family member. Could be very triggering so please stay safe!

The film is about drag queens and they meet with various people who are hateful towards them or just confused, as well as being self deprecating about what they do when unsure how they will be recieved, so there are some jokes but the film is on the side of the queer characters.

There's a Filipina character who's portrayed as a racist stereotype--a "mail-order bride" who tricked a white man into marrying her, speaks weirdly fake "broken English," and performs bizarre sexual stunts on stage.
