What happens when you tumble out of the big pink closet and across the LGBTQ+
spectrum in a sprawling queer heap? Well, life is never quite as straight
as it seems. Yorkshire lesbian Jessica Rowbottom (aka The Bleeding
Obvious) endeavours to describe the experience with original songs and
tales which are sometimes funny, occasionally poignant, frequently
emotional, usually queer – and it's probably the only show with the lyrics
'demisexual panromantic polyamorous androgyne'!
As she tries to find labels for her own gender identity and sexuality, Jessica recounts unexpected reactions from family and friends, dating disasters, growing up through Section 28 in the 1980s, dealing with a creepy admirer who may (or may not) be called Dave, straight people at Pride, transgender toilet panics and more.
