After making an LGBT festival for kids, I was wrongfully accused of being a child abuser by homophobes
through loneliness and blooming into anxiety, anger, depression and feelings of low self-worth which, only in recent years, I have overcome. I was furious that a generation of LGBTQ+ people grew up in shame and isolation, but rather than let that rage consume me, I’ve harnessed its energy into making theatre and performance. So, in 2018, I created FANTABULOSA!, an interactive drag show for kids with a troupe of drag artists, which we performed nationally. I wanted to create spaces for LGBTQ+ people to feel celebrated, empowered and joyful. The reception was incredible.
