Melbourne Festival Seeks Legal Adivce After Turning Away Transgender Women

A three-day women’s festival has caused upset after telling a potential customer that only transgender women who have “undertaken all operative measures” will be allowed into its event next year.

ABC reports that a woman named Kylee emailed organisers of the Seven Sisters festival, which is to be held next March in Mt Martha Melbourne’s South East, to ask if her partner, Belle, would be welcome. Belle is in the early stages of transitioning. 

The staff reportedly explained to Kylee that “having individuals onsite who are physically men would be breaking the trust of many women” but that they “are open to transgender women who have undertaken all operative measures to become a woman to partake in the festival”. (more…)

Did you miss Taylor Swift and (approximately) 1,302 of her special guests during her 1989 World Tour this year? Don’t sweat it. The songstress has found a way to make us feel like we were there, releasing a documentary with a bunch of the on-stage action through iTunes this month. 

Dubbed The 1989 World Tour LIVE, the Jonas Ackerlund-directed doco will showcase Taylor’s entire performance in front of 76,000 fans at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on November 28.


Considering Taylor’s Sydney concert and entire Australian leg didn’t feature any of the special guests that the rest of the world was granted with, the doco will also include never-before-seen footage of Taylor backstage and during rehearsals with the celebs who appeared on tour.

The doco will be available from December 20 PST exclusively to Apple Music members around the world here. If you’re not a member, you can give the three-month free trial a go here. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on this.

In fact, a Goodwill store in Illinois, USA, has found itself in some heat after telling its employees to not be like Kanye West, who some would say is the great god of resting bitch face. (more…)
