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