Charlene (Charles Colbung), Anna Mae (John Collard), and Ella (John Fitzgerald) are three black queens who glam up the nightlife in Perth. Charlene and Ella are well known socialites in the gay scene while Anna Mae struts regularly on the stage.
Sissy takes you behind the scenes to give a rare insight into a sub culture that has created its own space within the gay culture, and it explores the bond that sets the black ‘sisterhood’ apart from the white gays. Sissy is an expression of gay black identity: “We are glamorous, we are here and we are queer”.
