Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras premiere event: Serving neo-punk, anti-glamour realness. Fuck Fabulous is a queer protest party!
Your host, queer, fat, femme cabaret icon, Yana Alana, brings together a fierce line up of dance, circus, drag, comedy and performance artists in the world premiere of Fuck Fabulous.
Serving neo-punk, anti-glamour realness, this cabaret variety show is a protest against the commodification of queer culture and a collective reimagining of what it means to be queer and fabulous.
Fuck Fabulous is a neo-punk protest party. A homage to our queer elders and a manifesto of hope that together we can create queer new worlds that value difference and diversity.

The Fuck Fabulous ensemble acknowledges and respects all LGBTIQ+ elders and communities who have forged a path for us to be here. Especially to those who fought for their right to be fabulous. Fuck Fabulous celebrates those queers who are not visible, those who were never invited to the party and those who were, but chose to stay at home.
