A glitter-covered, fiercely flamboyant wrestler smacks down a hypermacho luchador. Gender-bending dancers perform vintage burlesque routines in between the action. Crowds roar. That is Lucha VaVoom. It's called America's most outrageous show for a reason. The high-octane hybrid show offers Mexican wrestling, circus artists, seductive dancers, and even aerial acts by Violet Chachki. The show has brought together performers of diverse ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations into one unparalleled found family ready to entertain you. The new documentary Lucha VaVoom: Inside America's Most Outrageous Show takes the viewer onstage, backstage, and into the lives of the individuals who make the show the spectacle it is.

In this clip, genderqueer performance artist Karis Wilde candidly shares how questioning her own identity led to freedom beyond gender.

In the clip below, meet Cassandro el Exotico, the self-proclaimed Liberace of Lucha Libre, and discover why he deserves the title Queen of the Ring.

Lucha VaVoom Inside America's Most Outrageous Showwill release online October 16.
