50 Years Before the Frock

  • Garnet Station 85 Garnet Road Auckland, Auckland, 1022 New Zealand (map)

Some people put little thought into what they wear, and some people labour heavily over their outfit for an evening. For Julia, it took over 50 years to don a dress.

My name is Julia Clement, and I am an openly transgender woman, stand-up comedian and computer software developer. I will perform a one woman show about the 53 years between my first questioning of my gender identity in 1962 and the first time I stepped on a comedy stage as myself in 2015 and performed as Julia. I intend to be brutally honest with all the laughs and the tears my journey has demanded of me, with a fair amount of bafflement as well. As a comedian I can promise you far more laughs than tears. I will even tell the true story of how I once fell off my garden and landed in a tree.

Please note: This show may contain adult, transgender & gay culture themes.
