Making its Melbourne debut, the world-famous Miss First Nation is a talent-based pageant for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander drag entertainers. Now in its third year, the competition has received huge accolades for its originality and authenticity and was documented in the multi-award-winning film Black Divaz. Only one queen will be crowned in the grand final spectacular at YIRRAMBOI’s Closing Night Party.
Joining us all the way from Taiwan as a special guest judge and performer is the very first Miss First Nation Taiwan, Rose Mary. Plus, rumour has it that there will be a huge surprise in store with an appearance from one of Australia’s biggest First Nations music acts! This will be a night of spectacular costumes and dazzling glamour.
