Cover Story: Original Cyndi

Thirty years after she became a global star, “that wacky chick” from Queens, New York, is back as a serious talent on Broadway and will soon tour Australia. Clem Bastow offers a personal account of the music, career and causes of the inimitable Cyndi Lauper.


This edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ features a couple: Andrew and Teri, married 24 years, both sell The Big Issue in Geelong, Victoria. And on ‘Streetsheet’ we have contributions from Manny R in Sydney, Jock in Perth, Bill in Fremantle, WA, and De, Conrad and Matthew G in Melbourne. On our ‘Your Say’ page, we have a picture of Sydney vendor Marcus, who has received loads of Facebook messages from well-wishers since announcing his plans to run the City2Surf fun run.
