Inspired by a Black gay experience, this autobiographical piece focuses on the ups and downs of pride and self-loathing. Through storytelling, spoken word and live art, Jamal Gerald develops the courage to tell his story of how he learned to celebrate his individuality, by embracing the slurs that were thrown his way, and how to wear labels without shame.

Suitable for over 16s (contains strong language, references to sex and drug use.)

Supported by Arts Council England, The Writing Squad, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Theatre in the Mill, Contact and Cast Doncaster.
