I am, along with The Penny Slots, applying to represent Ireland in the Eurovision in 2016. By doing so we are aiming to explore the lengths at which someone will commit to a dream they have, their passion and drive, despite the odds that are stacked against them. The show is also very much about asking Ireland to welcome something different to the stage. Something unfamiliar. We are used to pop stars, drag queens and sports icons. But are we really all that comfortable with a gay man in spanks, asking for approval? I want to reevaluate the Irish view of queer and camp, and of course, normality. Because we’re all a Pop Star deep inside. Right?
