Miss First Nation 2021

Party Passport

Blak Queens compete for the crown in the fishnetted legs of 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. 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.
