Mama Alto is a Melbourne cabaret and jazz icon. She is also a storyteller and a transgender activist, who creates spaces allowing LGBTQI+ people the safety to find power in their softer moments. The cabaret extraordinaire tells Star Observer she fulfilled a lifelong dream when she stepped on stage at the iconic Joe’s Pub in New York City in February this year. “I’ve watched performances there for the last fifteen years, and now to grace that stage myself really just blows me away,” she says. She made her American solo debut at the iconic NYC venue, which is best known for hosting the most legendary of singers, such as Adele and Amy Winehouse.
