“In 2017, Ivan stood up against homophobic taunts on Oxford St. As a result he was assaulted, before famously being rescued by 3 drag queens in full drag. Unlike many who stay silent after such incidents, Ivan had the courage to speak out publically, strategically generating one of the key narratives of the Same Sex Marriage Plebiscite. His actions across the media illustrated the dangers of empowered homophobia. This exhibition will explore this story.” – Todd Fuller.
Wigs and heels were lost that night, but as Coco says, “there is no use crying over ripped lace”.
This exhibition also features a new series of illustrated ceramic plates, back by popular demand.
