Transitioning isn’t new – everybody’s doing it!

Transitioning isn’t new – everybody’s doing it: Drag Queens, babies, aging parents, Superheroes…even clown fish!

Autobiography meets activism in this homage to queer ancestors who paved the way, not-so-queer folks who did their best and the finned and four-legged who depend on us. Fresh from a sold-out season at the Brisbane Powerhouse, Queer as Flux invites the audience to experience the world through the eyes of a grown-up tomboy, their Drag Queen Fairy Godmother and a wise old whale.

This intimate, uplifting solo performance, by multi-award winning writer/performer Stace Callaghan and director Leah Mercer, celebrates transitions of bodies, hearts and minds via stories of gender, sexuality, spirituality, near-death experiences, dementia, dying and interspecies love.
