Due to its rescheduling from July to November this year, NAIDOC Week falls during Canberra’s Pride month. To celebrate, we’re screening a film about queer Indigenous identity.

Black Divaz goes beyond the glitz, glue guns and glamour of black drag to reveal a fun, fabulous and sometimes fearful place.
Over five steamy days, contestants in the inaugural Miss First Nation pageant will compete in fierce lip-synching battles, photo shoots with crocodiles and challenges that will see them 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.
Black Divaz is a sassy, intimate portrait of what it means to be an Indigenous Drag Queen today.
