Priscilla, Queen of the Desert Official Trailer #1 - Terence Stamp Movie (1994) HD

Two drag-queens (Anthony/Mitzi and Adam/Felicia) and a transgender woman are hired to perform a drag show at a casino in Alice Springs--a resort town in the Australian Outback. They head west from Sydney in their ramshackle bus, "Priscilla." In route their bus breaks down and they discover the person who hired them is Anthony's estranged wife.

"Priscilla, Queen of the Desert became an instant favorite to me when it debuted at the film festival in 1994. I remember the Tampa Theatre being sold out and it was a great night for the festival. Why I love this film is related to the political climate going on here in the state of Florida right now. The film has drag queens, transgender, family along with laughter and some reality realizations for the Queer community. This film has a positive ending which in real life can happen too as long as we stick together like the 3 stars did throughout the film. This film proves that there will always be a need for a cock in a frock on a rock." - Tim Thomas
