The legacy of Trixie Laumonte 

Trixie Laumonte first took to the stage in Brisbane over thirty years ago, where she began a career at The Beat Megaclub that would go on to span across three decades.

Known for her sharp wit, powerhouse performances and her distinctive voice, Trixie became a staple of the Brisbane community.

There are few who ventured to Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley and it’s queer venues who hadn’t encountered her talent over the years.

But her time as an iconic performer was established well before her move to Queensland.

Beginning as one of the Les Girls, Trixie Laumonte went on to become a beloved part of the Sydney drag community throughout the seventies and eighties before her move to Queensland.

But wherever she went, Trixie Laumonte left her mark.
