Produced and performed by Ricky Beirao, Confessions of a Drag Queen tells the tale of a young drag queen and their quest to stardom. Through a narrative that sees the protagonist dive into the gay scene with fervor — how else are you supposed to? — and ambition, Beirao, in a way, illustrates his own life.
Female performers cross-dress too; there’s sequins, wit and a revelation into the culture behind homosexuality, bisexuality, transsexuality and even the mysterious pansexuality. Therefore, it was an obvious selection for Mardi Gras.
