Glenda Jackson

Our next guest coming of age story began in the late 1960’s in the steel city of Newcastle NSW, where Glenda Jackson first walked on stage in drag.

Glenda has worked alongside other drag legends over time like Bubbles Le Gay and Carlotta to name just a few.

Who would have guessed that a city that was built on coal and steel would have such a thriving drag scene, the queens of today would have been envious of all that was going what was happening decades ago.

Glenda, now in her 70’s has not slowdown with age, just like a good bottle of wine that just keep getting better with age, she still can be seen hosting BIG BALLS bingo at her local Carrington Bowling Club every week.
