Birdmen Anonymous

The Midnight Horrors

Do you look to the sky and wonder: what might it be to soar?
Do you stand at the edge of the void, look longingly into it,
and hear loud its weighty call?
Is its voice – beckoning and heavenly – your own?


At Birdmen Anonymous we have all felt the fervent draw of the wind and the cool air. And we have all found freedom from our feathers, jets, and hope: through membership of the Birdmen Anonymous fellowship.


Birdmen Anonymous is a support group for those who would fly. The Icarus’, the Hindenbergs, the Challengers, the Franz Reichels, the Dragons, the Concorde 2000s, all those Falling Men. Join us.

Tobias Manderson-Galvin (he) is a recovering Birdman. He failed a Puppetry Unit and an OHS Unit in a Diploma of Arts course in 2004.  He is frequently pulled aside for additional searches at airports.

Teneille Clerke (she/they) is a recovering Birdman. Teneille occasionally performs under the name ‘International Male DJ’ and runs the unregistered ‘Tenfingerz Travel’ with great offers on guilt trips, ego trips, and power trips.
