THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — It’s one thing to share a laugh at our expense behind closed doors, but it’s an entirely different ballgame when one creates an entire theater production for the sole purpose of making money by utilizing the hatred or disdain some in our society have for transgender people and exploit it for the purpose of making money.
The production of “Trannie” is coming to the Sydney Opera House (yes, that iconic building). The following is a description of the production from the SOH website:
“It really is a hard-knock life for ten year old little orphan Fannie. His parents left him in a basket on the doorstep of the Sutherland Shire Children’s Orphanage with nothing but a bracelet and a bottle of Stoli. Now he is desperate to get his long-overdue gender reassignment surgery, but there’s so much standing in his way: including that boozy matron Miss Trannigan who has just been listed on the sex-offender registry, and is bitter from years of Logie losses. Thank God Fannie has a bunch of foul mouthed orphans and his/her trusty ex-sniffer dog to help him/her survive.”
Miss Trannigan? Sex-offender registry? The person who is behind this production is Trevor Ashley. We’re not likely going to stop him from making money exploiting us, but we can try to put a Shroud of Shame over the Sydney Opera House.
