The Fabulous Wonder Mama is a cosplay/drag persona I have been performing for about 6 years now when she first appeared in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras!

Since then Wonder Mama has appeared at events around the world such as World Pride in New York City and Wonder Con in Anaheim California! She does a lot of charity work and fundraising as well as free Storytime events both online and in-person!

As Renny, I was a graphic designer and illustrator for over 20 years and have recently written and illustrated two children's storybooks that are for sale on Amazon around the world. I still design, illustrate and dabble in all sorts of creative things!

Lovely tour with the fabulous wonder mama who is a Sydney born drag queen and has fountains of knowledge about the queer history of this amazing city. They contacted us a few times prior to the tour to ensure we knew the time and place to meet and this all went smoothly. The walk is not strenuous and has plenty of rest points where areas of interest are discussed. Wonder mama is very friendly, easy to talk to and answers all questions with good knowledge and humour. Thoroughly recommend.

We really enjoyed wonder mama's guide tour. We are Japanese guests and not good at speaking/listening English, wonder mama spoke to us very slowly and clearly with funny joke that we can understand her story and history of LGBTQ journey in Sydney.
If you want to enjoy and discover Sydney more, we highly recommend LGBTQ walking tour with wonder mama! (even if you are not good at English!)

I’ve lived in the area before but never knew too much about its LGBTIQ+ history. Wonder mama was entertaining and informative and extremely personable. I walked away with a wonderfully phallic waffle and a renewed appreciation of how a community can band together to prevail against the forces that sought to stamp it out of existence. Highly recommend this to anyone.

We went as a corporate group to learn about the history of Oxford Street, Mardi Gras and the evolution of gay rights in Australia. This tour was fun and informative. We were able to ask questions and see so much in just two hours! The waffles at the end were so delicious and Wonder Mama was a fabulous guide!

I had a lovely afternoon on the walking tour with Wonder Mama, who was very sweet and showed us some cool places around the Oxford Street area. I learnt a lot and definitely found it to be good value.

Wonder Mama was fabulous! She was everything a Super Hero should be - knowledgeable, patient, funny and entertaining. I'm a Sydney local and I learned a few things about our community, Oxford St and the areas around. And the naughty waffles at the end were hilarious! AND we saw celebrities!
