‘A joyful letter to self-expression’
My Son’s a Queer
Stars are born to shine
Straight — well, not exactly straight — from a smash-hit run in London’s West End comes Rob Madge’s triumphant and hilarious celebration of identity, creativity, and the profound bond between a parent and their child.
When Rob was twelve, they attempted a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their grandma. As Rob donned wigs and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy. Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction. Mom mistook Aladdin for Ursula. The costumes went awry. Grandma had a nice time, though.
My Son’s a Queer (But what can you do?) is the joyous autobiographical story of social-media sensation Rob Madge as they set out to recreate that infamous parade – and this time, nobody, no, nobody is gonna rain on it.
