Actor, (legendary) drag queen and gay rights activist, Bette Bourne is the deserving subject of this docu-portrait, which is part history lesson, part stand-up set.
Now 74, the larger-than-life (if avowedly down-to-earth) Bourne relates an evocative, poignant and frequently hilarious tale of abusive fathers, old Soho, terribly English orgies and ceaseless harassment – not to mention parading down Oxford Street with the Gay Liberation Front, “screaming our tits off”.
The title, incidentally, is a nod to his blunt riposte to a Marylebone Magistrates Court judge in 1971 who told him to remove his fancy hat. Marvellous
