Behind ‘The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.’
WHY WE PICKED IT: Narrated by Terence Stamp, this fascinating documentary offers a behind-the-scenes look at a now-beloved movie’s controversial release.
When Stephen Elliott’s glitzy and fabulous ‘Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’ - a low-budget Australian picture about two drag queens and a trans woman traveling across the outback - landed in theaters in 1994, it made a mighty splash, introducing a celebration of LGBTQ culture to the world. This is the story of how, exactly, an unlikely little movie about three “cocks in frocks” became an internationally adored sensation that changed gay history.
