“Girls Just Want To Have Fun” – Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Music and Lyrics: Robert Hazard

Hit Australian film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert led to this musical with a score bursting with pop songs about two drag queens and a transgender woman who must travel in a camper named Priscilla for a gig.  Today this catchy girl’s anthem is in honor of José Sarria who was born on this day in 1922.  Sarria, a.k.a. the Widow Norton, was the founder of the internationally-recognized drag court, the Imperial Court System.
