Synopsis
Melbourne, 1994; 'the' place to be seen was TASTY, underground gay club and playground for the fabulous. A magnet for the creatures of the spotlight and the 'in crowd'. A 'safe' zone where the queer and the queer-friendly clubber could set free and be whoever and whatever they desired to be. But all that was brought to an abrupt finish when the club was raided by the Victorian Police in a spectacular drug bust. Human rights were violated and people were traumatized both physically and emotionally. But out of torment came triumph as a proud few chose to fight back, culminating in a court case and subsequent pay out that is now celebrated for its historical and humane significance.

TASTY BUST is a scathing, revealing and fast paced documentary from renowned Writer & Director Stephen MacLean (THE BOY FROM OZ) and features dazzling editing from Sioux Currie (JOHN SAFRAN'S MUSIC JAMBORIE). What is now referred to in the Gay, Lesbian and Transgender community as Australia's own  Stonewall, TASTY BUST is a scandalous tale of decadence, bravery, persecution, adversity and the right to be yourself against all odds!
