Hidden Sydney - learn, laugh, lust

Hidden Sydney is a immersive theatre show set in, about and performed in Kings Cross Sydney.  During the show you learn, laugh and lust - what else do you need?

Here I talk to the producer and director about the genesis of the show and their career paths to get here.

Great theatre can change lives and this show proves that.

Andrew Guy - Actor, Advocate, Activist.

In my first podcast we discussed whether cisgender people should play transgender roles, since we were both cisgender, I thought I should find someone who could talk from their own lived experience.

Andrew is an amazing guy who not only is a trained actor but also an advocate for the transgender community.  

No one person can fully represent a community so this is Andrew's story, and Andrew's story reminds me to be true to yourself and to work hard at your craft.

Julie Bates - Leader, Warrior, Activist!

The life that Julie has lived is truly amazing! From the experiences she has had, to the things that she has achieved.  

I know a lot of people that I call inspiring, but I also use the terms "Warrior" and "Leader" when it comes to Julie.  

Julie's story makes me determined to fight for what I believe in and the human rights I believe we all deserve.
