Silicone boobs, queer history and Sydney’s best LGBTQIA+ bars with Kiama Blowhole

I dance and sing the rest of the night away with a euphoric crowd at Universal and stick around for the midnight drag show to marvel at the gravity defying talent of Eli Crawford—a musclebound, leather-corseted, lip-syncing burlesque dancer, who can gracefully ‘jump-split’ his 120-kilo body weight in thigh-high patent stiletto boots. 

Blowhole is a divine host who cheers, warms, inspires and breaks through sobering moments with a wacky demeanor, reminiscent at times of the legendary late Kenny Everette’s ‘Cupid Stunt’ antics.

The chats, however, are up to you. My tip is, if deeper conversation is gifted, dive in. Blowhole’s slapstick flamboyance wraps a great deal of insight and understanding. And there is a huge heart behind those big boobs.
