Release date for Hannah Gadsby's Gender Agenda

Featuring Chloe Petts and other 'genderqueer' comics

Hannah Gadsby's Gender Agenda is to drop on Netflix on March 5, the streaming service has announced.

And the company has released the trailer for the stand-up showcase featuring ‘genderqueer’ comics and filmed at the Alexandra Palace Theatre in London.

Gadsby found fame on the streamer with her special Nanette, but has also been critical of it giving a platform to Dave Chappelle to deliver material widely condemned as transphobic.

In the special, Gadsby jokes: ‘The last time Netflix brought this many people together it was for a protest.’

The line-up features British stand-up Chloe Petts as well as DeAnne Smith, Alok, Ashley Ward, Jes Tom, Mx. Dahlia Belle, and Krishna Istha.

In a statement to Variety, Gadsby said: ‘There is such a wealth of brilliant genderqueer comics out there, but such a dearth of representation on the major streaming services. 

‘Meanwhile jokes about trans people are becoming more and more lucrative, so it seems only right that at least some of those jokes be told by actual trans people themselves,

‘So, I am beyond thrilled to bring this lineup together, showcasing seven extraordinarily talented comics and to use my platform (and Netflix’s…) to hopefully help catapult them into the spotlight that they deserve. 

‘They (and I mean ‘they’ in every sense of the word) are some of the funniest, smartest genderqueer comedians from around the globe, and it was an utter delight and true honour to share the stage with.’
