A breakaway from the Chameleons, Pollys once hosted a range of social events including the Polympics and still run regular dances.

Sue-Ellen explains how Pollys still continues.


Sydney has a long history of female impersonators. It was through the camp night spots in the early 60s, that a new wave of drag performers first emerged.

Sue-Ellen talks generally about Pollynesian productions.
