My Other Closet the Cabaret is coming to Geelong

Thursday, 23 January 2020

The one-man show features Russell Vickery, who developed the performance piece with partner Matthew Parsons, Manager of LGBTIQ Intimate Partner and Family Violence at Rainbow Health Victoria, to highlight the little-known reality of violence in same sex and gender diverse (LGBT) relationships.

One-part entertainment, one-part education and awareness campaign, this production gives powerful and moving insight into the causes of domestic violence, how to seek help, and how to put it to an end.  

After sell-out seasons in Sydney and Melbourne, My Other Closet is coming to Platform Arts, 60 Lt Malop St Geelong, on Friday 7 February and Saturday 8 February 2020.

The performances coincide with Geelong Rainbow Festival 2020, which runs from Tuesday 4 February through to Sunday 9 February 2020.

Run by Geelong Rainbow Inc this year’s festival includes the installation of a Rainbow Crossing in Lt Malop St, which aims to honour our local LGBTQIA+ community as well as a family-friendly Fair Day and Pride March at Johnstone Park.

My Other Closet the Cabaret is set to be an informative, emotional performance for all, to educate audiences on an issue that unfortunately occurs in all communities.

Greater Geelong is proud to promote, support and celebrate diversity and inclusion in our community.

Councillor Trent Sullivan - Chair, Arts, Culture and Heritage Portfolio

Our region has again attracted another quality performance, that will raise awareness of a serious issue experienced by some members in our community.

My Other Closet coincides with the annual Geelong Rainbow Festival, which is another chance for the broader Greater Geelong community to come together and support our LGBTIQA+ residents.
