The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of The Desert
and The Birdcage
share their views on the issues facing gay drag. I found Priscilla
to have less of a flair for the dramatic, because it depicted the real life realities faced with being homosexual on a day to day basis. Whether it was finding love, or sometimes dealing with harsh homophobia. I found this movie more relatable with my everyday life. The Birdcage
had its moments where I could identify with some of the characters, but I found it to be more of a laugh riot. Whether it was comical or dramatic it sent the same message to me, it’s not who we’re attracted to that makes us a person but what’s inside us that counts.
