BLURRING queer lines

The Feeling frontman and chart-topper Dan Gillespie Sells is back with a new musical. Debuting in She field in February, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie champions the power of embracing your own queerness. It follows the true story of a brave young teen taking his first steps on the road to self-acceptance in heels and drag – first shown as the BBC documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16. Fighting to forever be unapologetically himself, Dan tell us why this tale of a boy with a dream and a passion for drag could be the queer musical new generations have been waiting for.


“I do quite like my gay life and my gay things,” proclaims singer, writer and musician Dan. “Maybe I’m old fashioned, but in the future, people might not want to be referred to by their gender and, as such, their sexuality becomes irrelevant.”

It’s an interesting notion that The Feeling frontman raises when we meet one afternoon. Dan is taking a break from studio time to discuss his latest project Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – a fresh musical inspired by the hit BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, which followed a young teen who fights against his school and his father’s wishes to soar to loud and proud new heights.
