In this Melbourne exclusive, revolutionary trans icon Jo Clifford hosts a deeply personal introduction to her ground-breaking play, The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven.
Imagining Jesus as a trans woman is a liberating idea and in this reflection, Jo will share her re-discovery of the Gospels and the dangerous journey she undertook to create this celebrated work.
Since its immaculate inception, The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven has been translated into six languages, performed in every continent, and has been spoken as a blessing at trans marches across the world, earning Jo the title of Saint Jo, Scribe of Our Souls from the Order of Perpetual Indulgence.
Following the 2021 Green Room Award Winning Australian premiere, The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven returns to fortyfivedownstairs with this companion piece spoken by none other than the creator herself.
An Hour with Queen Jesus is a shared meditation about how we can learn to love ourselves more and also love and cherish each other. And in doing that, learn how to change the world...
