MAN ON! //
In 2019 an anonymous Championship player created a Twitter account entitled “The Gay Footballer”. The purpose was to create a platform for them to come out to the industry and their fans, however 48 hours before the supposed press conference they tweet to their 50,000 followers: “I’m not strong enough” and delete their account.
Was it a hoax? Or an extraordinary U Turn?
Man On! aims to investigate: where are Britain’s gay footballers? Performed by an intersectional cast of queer performers it will be an hour long experience, with a scope to tour to pitches, public parks, green spaces as well as traditional theatre venues.
