Ms B Presents… GAY ICONS (2012)
The Menagerie, Belfast

What makes some women gay icons, and not others? What is it about the relationship between gay men and straight women that entices pop culture? I transferred my lecture and performance night, Ms B Presents.., to Belfast for the 2012 Outburst queer arts festival for a special GAY ICONS edition, exploring the stereotypes of gay icons and their real life connotations/counterparts. The event was followed by an evening of karaoke, where audience members were invited to sing songs by gay icons such as Whitney Houston, Tori Amos and Madonna.
