About Ruby Slippers

A high-femme kaleidoscopic cyclone of extroversion and light perversion, Ruby Slippers lives by the motto that you’re either Dorothy, or you’re the twister. She's campy yet vampy, a clown-in-a-gown, burlesque supervillain and drag disruptor. A serial name-dropper, she’s shared a stage with Amanda Lepore, Brooke Candy, The Boulet Brothers and Boy George, Michelle Visage has called her work “incredible” and Courtney Act once told her she looked stunning. Enough said.

Stand Up Against Street Harassment

training by L'Oréal Paris with Plan International Australia

The Stand Up Against Street Harassment campaign and intervention program, an initiative by L’Oréal Paris in partnership with girls’ rights charity Plan International Australia, is focused on raising awareness about street harassment, and providing training in the 5 Ds – Distract, Delegate, Document, Direct, and Delay – to support bystanders to safely stand up to street harassment when they see it.

Learn how to safely combat street harassment by taking the Stand Up training. Scan the barcode at the L’Oréal Paris machine (located on the Ground Floor at ACMI) to complete the 5 minute training and receive a L’Oréal Paris product in return.
