Hannah Gadsby

Hannah Gadsby is a lesbian comic from Australia who is performing a powerful piece on Netflix ("Nanette"). Her show starts off as comedy but, half-way through, it gets deadly serious. She rages -- with justification -- at "gender-normal" advocates (e.g., most people) and how they harm the lives of those who are different (like me).

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn. See it. Really.
