MP gets in for a Cher of ac­claim

The Cairns Post - - NEWS - CHRIS CALCINO

WAR­REN Entsch was a celebrity in his own right at the Syd­ney Gay and Les­bian Mardi Gras, fielding a thou­sand hugs and hand­shakes for his work on mar­riage equal­ity.

Bright though it may be, the Le­ich­hardt MP’s star­dom on that glit­tery night was over­cast com­pared to that of a cer­tain pop diva with tan­ger­ine locks.

“I don’t usu­ally get starstruck but she was one I was re­ally keen to catch up with,” he said.

“I gave her a cud­dle and she con­grat­u­lated me and thanked me for my ad­vo­cacy.”

Mr Entsch waited for more than a week to get a copy of his photo with Cher to be given pride of place among the patch­work of im­ages dec­o­rat­ing his elec­torate of­fice walls.

The 71-year-old singer later apol­o­gised to fans for pos­ing for a photo with Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull but Mr Entsch is in her good books.
