• Lance Leopard changes his spot

    Lance Leopard is a gay icon and legendary gossip columnist from the glamorous 1990s of the Oxford Street strip, and beyond. Join us in Lance Leopard’s new spot. An ivory tower high above the fray, overlooking Darlinghurst, where secrets are both hidden and revealed.

    During his tenure as chief gossip and stirrer of The Scene in his weekly columns in The Star Observer, Capital Q, Out Biz and more, he dished the dirt and smeared the eyeliner without fear or favour.

    Lance even has celebrity advice for Dannii Minogue (a child superstar), Cybill Shepherd (selfish bitch) and his Mum (Ikeep my manners around her and try and teach her a few).

    Join us for drinks won’t you?

    I present short history of quotes from Lance Leopard;

    “I can admit it now because I’m retired”

    “People “remember” me doing all sorts of things. It might not have been me they actually remember. It could have been Sexy Galexy for all I know.”

    “The more you do something, the better you get at it. Or else you’re always dreadful and no one will tell you.”

    “Brisbane is like Baltimore, it’s one of those nutty little towns that just has its own thing.”

    “I don’t know if I should say this.”

    “If people are complaining there isn’t a scene. They can go out there and make one.”

    “I liked it when my columns were in magazines people had to actually buy. I made more of an effort then.”

    “Everybody has an opinion now days. But if it’s not an informed opinion, it’s a lousy opinion, and who needs to hear it?”

    When asked at what point in history Lance would have liked to have lived;

    “I would have picked the good years of Versailles. Before everybody got angry and started demanding cake.”

    On the world of gossip a learned Lance quotes Ru Paul;

    “What people say about you behind your back is none of your business.”
