One of Melbourne's worst keep secrets is out. Magda Szubanski is gay. She outed herself on tv. Not sure who she outed herself to, but never mind. Unfortunately she is probably not widely known in younger circles and therefore has perhaps passed her time as a useful role model for young lesbians. Well, not a role model, but as an apparently successful gay person. Never mind. I would hardly blame her for not coming out at the zenith of her comedy career. Anyway, good on ya Magda. Here is a clip from an old comedy sketch show, Fast Forward. Lynne was one of my favourite characters. Given I never really watched the show, I am surprised how knowledgeable I am about Fast Forward. Ah, bad memory. Tradie Brother called me useless because I did not know who Uncle Arthur was. I must have watched the show a bit after that.
Oh dear. I should try harder to keep up. FruitCake posted about Magda too and used the same clip. I composed this the day after her tv appearance. I should have published straight away. Still, it does show what excellent taste FruitCake has since she agrees with me.
