Courtney Act is coming to Student Pride!


Fresh from schooling the nation on being beyond the binary, we’re excited to announce that Courtney Act will be making an appearance at National Student Pride.


The RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni and recent Big Brother contestant is coming to National Student Pride searching for a date… and you could be that lucky person!

The light hearted relief at our event focused on highlighting LGBT+ youth homelessness, being non-binary, bisexuality and body confidence – is going to be a Blind Dates parody you never knew you needed until now.

Following on from Charlie Hides judging last year’s talent show and Alaska judging 2016’s Lip Sync Battle, Courtney will be starring in what we’re calling, ‘Queer Dates.’

Watch as main stage host, MTV’s James Barr introduces Shane Jenek in the persona of Courtney Act to the stage. James will undoubtedly ask Courtney the questions we all want to know about being in the Big Brother House.
