Mediocre Gay (Work in Progress)

When you grow up gay in a small town in nineties-Kent, it’s easy to think that your sexuality is the reason you don’t fit in. You dream of what life will be like when you grow up, run away to the big city and find your people. You will finally know what it's like to be normal, maybe even popular.

But what happens when you make that journey – literally and metaphorically - and find that you still don't fit in? Maybe your sexuality wasn't the reason you felt left out at all? What then?

Stand-up comedian, David Ian explores the expectations of being a gay man and how he struggles to meet them, the disappointment of never quite knowing where the party is and if you will ever truly belong. How can you be both too gay and not gay enough at the same time?

Support will be provided by the amazing Kate Dale.
