Product description


'Glorious, heartfelt, passionate and inspirational – a glamorous frock-filled adventure that explores the full fluidity of Shane's boundless bravery, love and humanity.' -- Osher Günsberg, one of Australia’s most recognisable media personalities

‘Chock-full of hilarity, honesty and wisdom, this is a classic tale of a search for identity – with masking tape, Spice Girls and RuPaul.’ -- Amanda Keller

‘Caught in the Act is an incredibly insightful memoir of the life of one of my dearest friends. Personally, my favourite parts were on pages 7, 32, 204, 236, 244–249, 255, 257, 277, 278, 284, 293, 323 and 324. The pages where I’m mentioned.’ -- Bianca Del Rio, international drag queen, star from RuPaul's Drag Race

‘He says… she says… there is a lot more to drag than just a wig and a frock. This read is shockingly honest, raunchy, funny and moving, and a hugely surprising education for me. A must-read for anyone curious to know the complexities of being Shane and Courtney!’ -- Dannii Minogue

‘We already suspected it, but this fearless, candid and open-hearted memoir proves that behind Courtney Act’s make-up is an emotionally intelligent and fiercely astute human being. We’re frankly lucky to be on the planet at the same time as them.’ -- Benjamin Law

‘Who wouldn’t love a frolic through life with Australia’s favourite girl next door? This book is whip-smart and deliciously funny, but above all else made me proud to know there are voices like Courtney’s in the world. Bow down to our queen, Australia.’ -- Joel Creasey

‘It’s like witnessing the metamorphosis of one of the world’s most beautiful drag queens. With vulnerability and honesty, Shane delves deep into the many light-bulb moments of self-discovery, sexual exploration and gender identity. It’s the ultimate LGBTIQA+ handbook and guide for us all to live an open-hearted life.’ -- Narelda Jacobs

‘In a world where there are now more drag queens than pubs, it’s hard to stand out. You need to be pretty, witty and unstoppable. Courtney is all three and more. I love this book.’ -- Boy George

‘Funny, smart, kind and entirely addictive, this is a glorious insight into an exceptional life. A road map for anyone who feels different and wants to let that side of themself shine.’ -- Matt Lucas

‘A coming-of-age story like no other. It is an honour to dive into the world of a young queer kid from the Australian suburbs and learn how they became an icon of entertainment and social politics.’ -- The Veronicas
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
