Queen of the Desert
Starlady is not your ordinary youth worker – with fabulous hair and outrageous outfits she is training young indigenous people in the art of hairdressing.
245 Albert St
PO Box 418
Not only has she got pink extensions, painted on eyebrows, glitter stockings and superman hotpants, Starlady’s a youth worker in some of Australia’s most remote and challenging places. And she reckons that hairdressing can improve people’s lives.
Like a real life Priscilla, Starlady takes us on a Queen of the Desert journey to Areyonga, an indigenous community in Central Australia, where she’ll work with a group of curious and cheeky young people.
‘Queen of the Desert’ is part of the Opening Shot initiative and is supported by ABC Television, Screen Australia and Screen Territory.
