Courtney Act in Lump of Coal this Holiday Season

Santa has put Courtney Act in charge of the naughty or nice list and she will be personally delivering your Lump Of Coal! That’s right, kiddies, thanks to global warming it’ll be an Alt-Right White Christmas, the elves have stopped building toys until they know if they’re being deported, and Kim Jong Un’s cover of “Rocket Man” is all anyone can talk about. This nuclear winter, join Courtney Act for an hour of the most glamorous group therapy and sneak a kiss under the missile silo as she takes on the harsh hilarities of the holiday season!

Kaleidoscope

CcusCkPUEAEP3sM[1]

My fourth video from the Kaleidoscope EP is the title track! And I am excited that it is also the official theme song of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras 2016!
I loved coming up with the concept for this video. I wanted to tell a story about a different facet of the Kaleidoscope. I feel that gender and sexuality are fluid and so often we get stuck in the rigidity. Who knows when someone outside your usual target zone might come also and sweep you off your feet?
I read this quote from Lily Edelstein the other day it is seemed fitting “At the heart of Queer culture is revolution. The truest rebellion against a world built on categories, labels and binaries is coming from the emergence of identities that refuse to conform.”

Buy Kaleidoscope now on iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/album/id10881…
Including Acoustic version, Jodie Harsh Remix, Dirty Pop Remix & Tanner Derby Remix.

AIDS Life Cycle

I like doing things that are a bit out of the box, wearing womens clothes, 10 day silent meditation retreats, Burning Man, 7 day fasting retreats… and a bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles apparently. I have heard so many wonderful stories from friends about the AIDS Life Cycle experience and am really excited/scared. 

 So on June 5th I’ll be getting on my bike with over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists and embark on a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Two really amazing causes. That’s like a whole week of bike riding!

 The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me.

 We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past, which I really believe is possible in this generation. Will you support me by making a donation today?

Gentlemen Prefer Blokes – The 7 Year Itch Australian Tour

7 years ago I went skiing in Canada right before our sold out Mardi Gras show opened in Sydney. I broke my leg and had to do the whole thing in a wheel chair. We spent most of what we would have made on couples therapy to stop Trevor from killing me. But we have the 7 year itch and we’re brining the show back in style – at the Sydney Opera House, The Powerhouse in Brissy and The GH in Melbs.

I promise not to engage in an adventure sports between now and Mardi Gras

Brisbane Powerhouse 13th February
http://brisbanepowerhouse.org/events/2016/02/13/gentlemen-prefer-blokes/

Melbourne GH Hotel 25th, 26th & 27th February
http://www.trybooking.com/176362 

Sydney Opera House 4th, 5th & 6th March
http://www.sydneyoperahouse.com/whatson/gentlemen_prefer_blokes.aspx

The official info:

Screen sirens Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell had it all! They were glamorous, could belt out a tune and diamonds were their best friend. Fame, fortune and scores of suitors were inevitable. In the parallel universe of today the girls are still glamorous belters with a penchant for diamonds, but with one not-so-little difference: these two little girls from little rock are two little boys from Darlinghurst.

Mega-watt stars of Australian drag Courtney Act & Trevor Ashley once again team up in their seven year itch reunion tour and take on some of history’s greatest duos as only they can.

Don’t miss your chance to see this incredible show

PS Here is a video of me with a broken leg
