99 minutes / Certificate 15 / In English

A trans-woman joins two drag queens to take their act on tour, travelling the Australian Outback in a rundown, garishly repainted school bus. Revelling in all that is tacky, outrageous and fabulous, this camp classic was a beloved box office hit and popular for its positive portrayal of LGBT lives. “Roaringly comic and powerfully affecting” – “It’s fun, daring, over-the-top and unforgettable. It’s a road movie with attitude and the occasional frock.”
Winner of Best Costume Design awards from the Academy, BAFTA and Australian Film Institute.
Named Outstanding Film by LGBT organisations GLAAD and L.A. Outfest.
Best Film and Best Actor at the Seattle Film Festival.
Best Movie at the Chlotrudis Awards for independent film.
