Synopsis

Black Divaz follows the inaugural Miss First Nation pageant where six Aboriginal drag queens from around Australia battle it out over five days for the coveted crown. This film that goes beyond the glitz, glue guns and glamour of black drag to reveal a fun, fabulous and sometimes fearful place especially if you are an Indigenous man in a country where identity is constantly examined. – “And you thought PRISCILLA was the only Queen in the Desert!”

Over 5 steamy days 6 contestants will battle it out in fierce lip synching battles, photo shoots with crocodiles and challenges that will see each contestant stretch more than just their wardrobe choices. What does it take to be crowned the winner? We follow each contestant as they talk candidly about what brought them to this glittering stage – their triumphs and tragedies and what being Miss First Nation means for them and their communities.
