About this event

Anna Piper Scott, Golden Gibbo nominee and fierce queen of the stand up scene is here to destroy myths about transgender people and make you cry-laugh while doing it.

Anna Piper Scott: Queer and Present Danger is everything you've ever wanted to know about being a trans woman, courtesy of one of Melbourne's sharpest comedians.

Anna shares real life experiences that are awkward, empowering and everything in between: from trying to understand the arbitrary nature of women's sizing or people suddenly being very curious about your genitals.

Anna demystifies trans life for cisgender folks, and gives transgender folks some sweet comebacks. After all, you learn a lot when you've gone through puberty twice.

Presented by:
Anna Piper Scott
