Rainbow Reasons To Go To Fringe

Even though we have only just picked the last bits of glitter out of our hair after Pride month, there is about to be even more when Fringe kicks off!

From camp comedy to camp cabaret, there is going to be glitter, feathers, cheeky humour and rainbows with these absolutely fabulous LGBTQ+ shows.

Give ‘Em the Ol’ Razzle Dazzle

Briefs: The Second Coming brings its boylesque, yo-yo tricks, high-flying circus bandits and irreverent interludes to The Rechabite or you can rocket (man) over to His Majesty’s Theatre and glam it up at Elton John: Your Song.

Get a little bit sinful at Yagan Square with Sinsuality: Love where you can explore the seven deadly sins with a touch of sexuality and love then become bewitched by BurLEZque: Spellbound as you summon otherworldly creatures and delve into dark fantasies.

Catch the brand-new show Filthy at The Woodside Pleasure Garden and be taken through the filthiest fantasies of some of Perth’s best performers using dance and live music and guided buy a seductive host.

Camp Comedy

Head to Girls School for Days of our Hives by Alanta Colley, a laugh a minute tale about a beekeeper’s experience with bees, wasps, heat, death and friendship while Jack Gow: Just A Small Town Boy is a hilarious, bittersweet coming-of-age story exploring the idiosyncrasies of growing up as an outsider.

Keeps the Lols going over at The Woodside Pleasure Garden with stand up star Zoe Coombs Marr at her show AGONY! MISERY! and Nath Valvo’s fast and sharp sell out hit CHATTY CATHY.

Ash_Traylia t@lks SH!T is a one-of-a-kind late night talk show featuring the hottest performers and hosted by Perth’s least popular drag princess Ash Traylia b!tch at Ice Cream Factory or check out the strange and attention grabbing dark comedy Awkward Conversations with Animals I’ve F*cked.

It’s Theatre, Darling

Indulge in the thought-provoking performance art of Boy Name: Reconcile or enter the mind of Ginava, as she takes on split personalities through the medium of spoken word lip-syncing in Split Lip at Girls School.

The Blue Room Theatre boasts the part game show, confessional, and part theatrical sex-tape 30 Day Free Trial led by Charlotte Otton and Andrew Sutherland, and the fascinating trip down Perth LGBTQ+ history with the Northbridge group walk The Lion Never Sleeps.
