Writers+Ideas


Shane Jenek (aka Courtney Act) discusses his latest memoir, Caught In The Act. A hilarious and at times heartbreaking story of searching for and finding oneself.

Raised in Brisbane suburbs by loving parents, Shane realised from a young age that he’s not like all the other boys. Fast forward to the turn of the millennium, he discovers a passion for drag and steps out as Courtney Act for the first time.

Courtney rose to national and global fame, making the Top 3 on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6; and taking the UK by storm on Celebrity Big Brother.

In this intimate and candid Writers+Ideas event, we get to meet Shane – the man behind the makeup.

Filled with trademark candour and wit, join Shane for a fearless and open-hearted conversation on gender, identity and acceptance.
