Film Info

Following the inaugural Miss First Nation pageant where six Aboriginal drag queens from around Australia battle it out over five days for the coveted crown, Black Divaz goes beyond the glitz, glue guns and glamour of black drag to reveal a fun, fabulous and sometimes fearful place. A sassy, intimate portrait of what it means to be an Indigenous Drag Queen today.

Reviews/Press Quotes
“Dedicating their film to the incredible courage of all ‘sister girls’ and ‘brother boys’ in Australia, the filmmakers hope it will spark a national conversation about equality, racism and the most marginalised and at-risk Australians in the country – Indigenous gay men and transgender persons.” – Teresa Tan,
