Jamie Boiskin is a menstrual activist! She has taken her own experience and turned it into a show as she is determined to get more conversation to be had by everyone.  She wants us all (yes men included) to talk about menstruation, endometriosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Elevan O'Clock #42 - Nikki Viveca

Nikki Viveca is a Melbourne-based comedian.  Her latest show, The Lazy Show,  is on at The Butterfly Club Feb 11 - 16. But Nikki also has three different shows coming up at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.  Maybe her definition of "lazy" is different to mine, as that actually sounds like a lot of work.

Elevan O'Clock #41 - Cazeleon

Elevan O'Clock #40 - Mamas’ Little Gayby

I probably can't describe Courtney's show any better than her poster - its about " Growing up in the 90s with lesbian mums and finding her own Queer in her heteronormative being" .  

Yes there is a lot to unpack in that, and through our conversation we do.  I think the biggest lesson I took from meeting Courtney is don't let other's define you.  Figure out your own definition and be proud of it!
