Stop me if you've heard this one.
Agent Smith, General Zod and Aldrich Killian walk into a pub...

Australia is a land of contrasts: Surf and sand, cold beer and hot days, gay bashings and a cult film about a trio of drag queens...

Wait, what?

In 1994, a small film made by a bunch of guerrilla filmmakers rewrote what being gay, transgender or a drag queen meant to the Australian public at large. From the feather boas to the famous 'Thong Dress', Priscilla made a splash that can be measured on the Australian consciousness, in our tolerance for those of the 'other'.

Join Matthew and Holly as they do a deep-dive into the world of Priscilla, the context of the shoot, and its impact around the world.
