Drag star Courtney Act released her new single “Kaleidoscope” today as the official anthem of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras 2016.
Courtney co-wrote the song with Australian singer-songwriter Sam Sparro and it pays tribute to the gender and sexuality revolution that Courtney sees taking place in the current generation of queer people.
“I love creating stories that push limits. I aim to confuse. Having identified as a gay man most of my adult life, the last few years I have realised that both my sexuality and gender are fluid,” Courtney said.
“This has been so liberating for me because I never fit into the binary of man/women or gay/straight anyway. I feel more comfortable existing in the grey area and I encourage anyone who feels like the status quo doesn’t represent them to join me.
“You may feel broken or separate but when you look through a kaleidoscope suddenly all of those broken bits and pieces create a beautiful image.”
