The 2014 DIVAs were held on Oct. 27 at the UNSW Roundhouse in Kensington to celebrate the achievements of the Sydney drag industry.
The colorful and fabulous award ceremony was a wild night of fun and glamour hosted by the fierce Minnie Cooper.
“I was lucky enough to host the event this year,” Minnie told us. “I wanted it to feel like the Tony or Academy Awards.” Minnie opened the ceremony with a hilarious spoof of ‘Anything Goes,’ backed by a tap-dancing ensemble that set the tone for the whole night.
