In this month's issue of Time Out Sydney, we celebrate the Sydneysiders (and overseas visitors) who are fighting to make the world a fairer place. We've been inspired by Mardi Gras, All About Women, and the Sydney Biennale's theme 'The future is already here, it's just not evenly distributed'. Speaking of the Biennale, this issue features a comprehensive guide to all seven of the art festival's 'embassies'.
Our cover star, Ms Conchita Wurst, is a perfect poster girl for equality. In the issue, she shares her shock that Australia does not yet have equal marriage rights, and tells us the number one way you can spot an Australian drag queen. Meanwhile, Carrie Brownstein, rock star, writer, actor and feminist icon, has shared her thoughts on writing a book, and the state of modern music making with our very own Megan Washington. You can catch Brownstein on stage in several incarnations this month, and we're very much looking forward to it.
This month, we also celebrate those bringing theatre to a group who've previously been excluded from the performing arts – intellectually disabled children. We also look into those who use food as a means to fight for social justice.
Of course, the best way to change the world is to get out there and start acting on it. We hope this issue inspires you to do just that.
