    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a 1994 Australian comedy-drama 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. The film's title references the slang term "queen" for a drag queen or female impersonator.


    The Bellingham Shambhala Center is sponsoring a film series on one Sunday a month at 3:30 PM. We will be screening a wide variety of films, suggested and chosen by members of our community for their meaning and relevance to their lives and each our individual spiritual paths. After each screening we will share our thoughts and tears and joys over tea and popcorn.

    If you have suggestions for films, please see Aaron, Tonya, or Renee at the Center Monday nights or email me (Renee) [email protected].
