The Mardi Gras Film Festival entitled Queer Screen celebrated its 25th anniversary.
A highlight was the screening of BLACK DIVAZ directed by Adrian Russell-Wills.
BLACK DIVAZ wen behind the glitter, flamboyance and glamour and extreme make-up tools as indigenous drag queens battle it out for the Miss First Nation pageant.
Their gruelling tests included lip-synching, contests, photo shoots with crocodiles and revealing intimacy as they talked candidly about what being Miss First Nation means for them and their communities.
The heat and humidity was totally absent on the Red Carpet as the participants in the film proudly paraded their fabulousness and happily posed for photos with their family, friends and supporters.
