It’s 1998… you’re sitting in front of your TV on Saturday morning and you’re watching Video Hits. The Spice Girls pop up on screen, you LOVE The Spice Girls! But soon you’re wondering – do I want to be Sporty Spice or do I want to be with Sporty Spice…?
Reminisce on your favourite hits from the 1990s-2000’s through a queer lens. Think Destiny’s Child, Britney, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys & more – queerified! At times hilarious and at times heartbreaking, I Want it That Gay is an irreverent look at the way popular culture shapes what we see and therefore who we’re allowed to be.
With a piano on stage and two mics in hand, follow Cara and Anna’s personal storytelling as they explore the challenges of growing up with starkly heteronormative music, popstars and paradigms. Crack open your CD cases and come along for the ride as they attempt to rewrite their adolescence – to the way it should have been.
