Courtney Act

Courtney Act

Boy, Girl. Artist, Advocate. Courtney Act is more than just the sum of her parts. She is a multifaceted artist and queer community advocate who embodies the zeitgeist of an era.

From her beginnings in the premiere season of Australian Idol to winner of Celebrity Big Brother UK, Courtney has become one of Australia’s most loved media personalities as series host of ABC’s One Plus One, Eurovision Australia Decides Spokesperson, and co-host of the Opening Ceremony for Sydney World Pride.

Adding to her list of achievements, Courtney made her stage debut with the Sydney Theatre Company in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit and has gone on to become best-selling author with the release of Caught in The Act by Shane Jenek.

Last year, Madame Tussauds Sydney revealed the Courtney Act wax figure as the centrepiece of their “Pride Zone”, immortalising her as one of Australia’s most influential cultural icons.
