Take the plunge with Courtney into the rapids of our times and the reflective ponds of her own journey with FLUID, an evening of song, soul, sexuality, and perhaps a little saliva (for those who sit too close).

Boy, Girl. Artist , Advocate. Courtney Act is more than just the sum of her parts. She is a contemporary artist who embodies the zeitgeist of an era. One of the f irst ar tists to show their gender fluidity, Courtney broke out of the box in 2003 to make it through to the semi-finals of the premiere season of Australian Idol and then signed to Sony/BMG.
In 2014 she returned to the television arena as one of the Top 3 in Season 6 of the Emmy Award winning RuPaul’s Drag Race, with a legion of new fans around the wor ld. Courtney then released her debut EP, Kaleidoscope, featuring mainstream pop beats and lux music videos. Her videos online have been viewed over 40 million times.
Proving once and for all that she was more than just a voice and a body, Courtney took on a number of controversial social causes and stories in her award-nominated political series American Act on Junkee.com. The series garnered over 6 million views and saw Act fire a gun, smoke marijuana, and attend a Trump rally in drag.
2017 marked the international tour of her original show: The Girl From Oz. This sold out world tour culminated in her debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with 5* s tar reviews.
2018 saw Courtney Act and Shane Jenek plow full steam ahead as winner of Celebr ity Big Brother UK – educating viewers on queer issues such as gender identity and fluidity, sexuality, same-sex marr iage and much more. After her successful world tour Courtney Act: Under the Covers, she made television history as the host of UK’s first bisexual dating show on E!’s The Bi Life to wrap up an extraordinary year in her very own Christmas special, The Courtney Act Show for Channel 4 UK and Peach (Australia).
