Summary
As Courtney Act, Shane Jenek has built a career as a drag queen, spokesperson, advocate, singer and all around performer with a strong (and beautiful) voice and advocate for change. Courtney uses her dazzling commercial profile to open up positive conversations about gender, sexuality, body image and identity. Since her original appearance on Australian Idol, her stint on Ru Paul's Drag Race, last year's appearance on Australian Dancing With the Stars and her yearly Mardi Gras involvement, she's well on her way to being a household name, certainly the biggest drag star we have grown locally, and this memoir will give a personal account of what it's been like to grow into a proud, passionate, politically aware genderfluid, queer Australian icon
