Panti: High Heels In Low Places | Melt2017
February 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+10
This event is part of MELT 2017 | Brisbane Powerhouse on Sun 05 February.
The Queen of Ireland, Panti, invites you into her gender discombobulating, stilettoshaped world.
Panti Bliss / Pantibar exposes the stories behind the make-up – from performance giant to accidental activist – to reveal the National F*cking Treasure she is today.
In 2014, Panti landed herself in a legal sh*tstorm, dubbed ‘Pantigate’. Her speech about homophobia went viral, was broadcast around the world, remixed by Pet Shop Boys, caused a parliamentary meltdown, and fed into Ireland’s marriage equality referendum success.
Hilarious and poignant, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against traditions to towering plastique woman in false lashes making history.
