THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT is an Australian comedy drama in which two drag queens and a transgender woman cross the outback in a tour bus to stage a show at a remote resort.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k') and infrequent discriminatory language ('faggot'), although the latter is not condoned or encouraged.

Sex

References are made to sex, tampons, and a sequence in which it is implied a woman is firing ping pong balls from her vagina.

In one scene a drag queen is attacked by a group of men, beaten, and threatened with rape. It is also implied in a flashback that an man sought sexual favours from a young boy.
