CLOSET is a night for homosexuals and those who love them. Like tennis, we're full of lesbians - and gay men and queer people of all persuasions.

POSTER GIRL: Margaret Court
Margaret Court AO MBE is a retired Australian tennis player and former world No. 1. In tennis, she amassed more major titles than any other player in history, and she has a Melbourne tennis stadium named in her honour.
In more recent years, Ms Court has become a Christian minister in Perth, WA, where she is an outspoken critic of same sex marriage and LGBT rights.
In recent weeks, Court wrote a letter to the editor of the West Australian calling for a boycott of Qantas.
She also told a radio station that tennis was 'full of lesbians' who predatorily 'took young ones into parties,' and compared the efforts to teach children about gender fluidity to the methods of Nazism and communism.
