Instant Gay Icon

There's no title more valuable to a pop star than "Gay Icon". With an inspiring message and a catalogue of perfect pop songs, an artist can earn a legion of adoring fans and a place amongst the greats: Cher, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga. But that sounds like a lot of hard work…

That's why Kate Kardashian West wants to become a Gay Icon - instantly. In a desperate attempt to earn the love of the gay community, she'll perform a set of pop hits that have been carefully formulated to turn her into a beloved diva. Because enough sequins can make anyone a star, right?

Instant Gay Icon is a musical comedy that deals with corporatisation of Pride and the complex relationship between straight women and the gay community - put simply, “bachelorettes in a drag bar” culture. It’s a fun and high energy show that fits somewhere between a stand-up special and musical theatre.
