What is Everybody’s Talking About Jamie about?
Inspired by the BBC documentary ‘Jamie: Drag Queen at 16’, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the powerful story of a boy with a passion for drag.
Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. Jamie is going to be a sensation.
Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight.
