Topic: The gay Disney Prince

Once upon a time in a Kingdom Far Away, there lived a dashing Prince who just happened to be gay! He’d tried dating Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, but deep down in his heart something didn’t feel quite right…”

Richard Watkins has performed his ‘Happily Ever Poofter’ show at the Edinburgh Fringe, the King’s Head, Islington and in Australia.  His show was described by London Box Office as “a simply joyous concoction of risqué lyrics transposed onto some rather familiar sounding ditties and the romp proves a total blast from start to finish”. Check out the review here:

Join Richard, as he gives a one-night only spectacular show, exclusively to Lee Green WI and friends. Hear why he created his gay Disney Prince show, watch him perform songs from his show and have the chance ask him questions. Better still – no charge!

Follow Prince Henry, the only gay in the Kingdom Far Far Away, on his royal adventure to find true love…

We will use the waiting room facility on Zoom for this event, so it would be great to know in advance who is joining.  Just ping your email (and name if it isn’t obvious) over to Caroline by Friday lunchtime.  This doesn’t mean you can’t join on the night, it just speeds your route through the waiting room. If you have any problems joining, please message Kay on 07719 937386 or Jane on 07715 102429.

Hope to see you on Friday.
