St Helens Park drag queen has time of her life at Broken Heel: pictures

The Broken Heel festival was anything but a drag for St Helens Park performer Felicia Foxx.

The drag queen just became one of the first Aboriginal people to take part in the annual festival.

The three-day event, inspired by the hugely popular Australian film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, took place in Broken Hill at the weekend and was a celebration of the nation’s most extravagant drag queens.

Ms Foxx was thrilled to take part in the affair.

“It was amazing, I never imagined I’d be a part of this three-day event,” the 18-year-old said.

“The sisterhood in the festival is unlike anything I've ever experienced. It was overwhelming to be met at the train station by so many people excited to see us all.”

Ms Foxx said she was blown away by the enthusiasm and excitement of the thousands of people who attended the festival.

She was proud to be an inspiration for her “mob” as the first Indigenous performer at the festival, alongside Jojo Zaho.

Ms Foxx can’t wait to return to the festival next year.

She said one of the highlights of Broken Heel was simply sitting back and enjoying the experience with her fellow performers.

“Taking off our makeup and costumes and the end of the night and just taking in the whole experience with all the other queens was such an amazing moment,” she said.
