Willy Hudson's funny, honest and open-hearted storytelling yanks the lid off the queer experience
Locked in his bathroom during a tragic third date, Willy Hudson asks: are you a top or a bottom?
Bottom is about bums, Beyoncé and burnt fish fingers. Join Willy for a queer coming-of-age remix, as he questions if ‘bottom’ in the bedroom means ‘bottom’ in life – and whether Beyoncé can help put his love on top. With a cracking soundtrack, Willy’s funny, honest and open-hearted storytelling yanks the lid off the queer experience.
This is for anyone who hates making the first move.
Anyone who thinks they are unlovable.
Anyone that’s ever tried to be someone they’re not.
