Blak Queens compete for the crown in Australia’s only national competition for First Nations drag entertainers.

Our fiercest entertainers will set the stage on fire (that’s FI-YA) over two heats, showing the audience what being fabulous is all about. But it all comes down to the finalists: they’ve got the talent, the sparkle and the sass, but who will take the prize (and the glory) in the most glamorous grand final in Australia? It’s a glitzy celebration of pride and togetherness, and a hilariously colourful show for everyone watching.

Don’t be fooled though, it’s tough competition with big, emotional highs and devastating falls – and that’s just the hairstyles.
