Today We Can Finally Say I Do

Today is the day! While same sex marriage was legalised in December, a 30 day notice period to register your marriage prevented the majority of couples from tying the knot.

There were a handful of happy couples who were able to get exemptions from the 30 day waiting period, so these aren’t the first same sex marriages in Australia, but couples wasted no time with some holding their weddings immediately after midnight last night.

Congratulations to all the newlyweds!

Drag Race Thailand is coming

Late last year, Thai production company Katana Group bought the rights to produce Drag Race Thailand and they’ve been hard at work constructing the sets. Check them out!

DITA VON TEESE  – THE ART OF THE TEESE
NEW SHOWS ANNOUNCED FOR PERTH AND SYDNEY

PERTH – NEW SHOW – THURSDAY, 16TH FEBRUARY – ASTOR THEATRE
SYDNEY – NEW SHOW – SUNDAY, 25TH FEBRUARY – STATE THEATRE

Tickets on sale now! right here

Dita Von Teese toured Australia for the first time in 2016 when she brought her burlesque show Strip Strip Hooray! for a national tour.  The tour sold out across Australia as audiences flocked to venues, dressed in their best vintage attire and keen to experience the very best burlesque performers and the Queen of Burlesque herself, Dita Von Teese.  This second tour will be just as successful and shows start to sell out nationally.

The Art of the Teese tour brings a number of brand new acts never before seen in Australia including “Lazy”, an act only ever performed at The Crazy Horse Paris (including new costumes from British designer Jenny Packham) and an all-new ballet-themed act “Swan Lake Stripteese”.  It also features four of Von Teese’s most exhilarating performances, including a brand-new version of her iconic “Martini Glass” routine which features a beautiful new baroque style gilded champagne glass, crystallized from top to bottom with over 150,000 Swarovski crystals. Each show throughout the tour will showcase the stunning visuals of the exclusive acts that have made Von Teese the consummate performer in modern burlesque, captivating the imagination and transporting audiences worldwide.

“Dita is absolutely mesmerizing. She elevates the art of tease with an effortless grace and ease that is thoroughly intoxicating, and the elegance and beauty of her movements will truly take your breath away! It is delicious, powerful and provocative!”

-Demi Moore

“Dita is the true definition of glamour”

-RuPaul
