LGBT health and wellbeing charity Healthy Communities is presenting a preview of the highly anticipated Glenn Close film Albert Nobbs. This fundraising event will benefit Healthy Communities’ Sex & Gender Diverse Action Group’s work to promote the health & wellbeing of transgender/sex & gender diverse Queenslanders.
The film is a humorous period drama that centres on the life of Albert Nobbs, a woman that dresses as a man to survive in 19th century Ireland. Nobbs works in one of Dublin’s most luxurious hotels as a butler, but is a man that keeps to himself and keeps his secret for 30 years.
Sexuality & gender are pivotal aspects of the film and five-time Oscar nominated Close is a firm favourite for the award next year.
