The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a 1994 Australian road comedy film written and directed by Stephan Elliott. The plot follows two drag queens, played by Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce, and a transgender woman, played by Terence Stamp, as they journey across the Australian Outback from Sydney to Alice Springs in a tour bus that they have named "Priscilla", along the way encountering various groups and individuals.
I have never seen the film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. At least, not that I can remember.
But, growing up, my siblings and I used to spend hours in our hallway-shaped suburban living room strutting up and down in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Eeyore pajamas dancing to a CD Soundtrack to Priscilla, Queen of the Desert that my mom must have picked up at some point. It was our favorite album. It was possibly the only album we knew. But, we’d tire ourselves out nightly to Village People, Gloriya Gaynor, CeCe Peniston, ABBA, and more.
My favorite, and the one that sticks out in my memory the most, is “I Love The Nightlife” by Alicia Bridges. But the whole soundtrack is Disco and Dance hits from the ‘70s-’90s and you really can’t go wrong.
Thanks for listening,
