About the Show
Goodbye gender dysphoria – hello Gender Euphoria.
Joined by a cavalcade of transgender legends, cabaret icons Mama Alto and Maude Davey embark upon a new variety adventure – nothing less than the pursuance and promulgation of Gender Euphoria, the state of being deliriously happy with one’s own and everyone else’s gender identities, gender choices and gender expressions.
What happens when we reject the binary? When we reject the expectation of misery? What happens when gender non-conforming people – trans, genderqueer, non-binary, agender, gender neutral, and anyone who steps outside the rigidly policed expectations of sex and gender roles – fully embrace our diversity, live our own truths, caress our traumas and triumphs alike, and don’t just scrape by to survive, but flourish and thrive? What happens when the system crumbles in the face of our fabulous divinity?
