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.

promote, support and celebrate diversity and inclusion in our community.

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.
