Midsumma Westside 2019: Mamas' Little Gayby

Wednesday, 06 February 2019 | 08:00 PM to 09:00 PM


In this one woman cabaret by an emerging artist, Mamas' Little Gayby shares stories of growing up in the 90s with lesbian mothers and discovering her own queerness.

As a cis, hetero, mono woman, in a community and family of LGBTIQA+ peeps, Courtney pays respects to those who don't have the same privilege in the nuclear norm, while sharing where she fits in.

Wearing Mr Ophelia X designs and hitting home with storytelling, song and video, you won't even know you're being educated.

From entertaining stories of standing up to bullies, fighting for her rights at the school's mothers day stall, growing up seeing drag and Auslan interpreters at Midsumma picnics and mums who drive around in VW Kombis, picking up touring lesbian artists from the airport... to feeling confronted by her own sexuality being attracted to men and the conflict this brought within herself, going against the grain of the way she was raised and the community she was raised in.

At long last she is back and queer af! Making up for lost time of not acknowledging her relationship identity, through her love for a multitude of people under the stars and rainbow. She's coming out of the closet with sass, vulnerability and some sexy ass outfits!!! Not to mention her own theme song, as every diva superhero should have!
