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…”

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

Rich Watkins, having performed in Edinburgh, London and Australia, gave an exclusive performance last Friday for Lee Green WI and friends, recreating excerpts from his gay Disney Prince show, singing songs from the show and explaining the story behind it.

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” and what a fab evening Rich and Danny treated us to.

Danny’s challenging gay rights and activism quiz was a fascinating look back at many historical milestones, and an absolute masterpiece of powerpoint.

We can only hope that Prince Henry did find his one true love, he certainly deserved to.
