236: Gay Actors 1 - Honeysett
from “All Hands Off Stage” by Honeysett.
in "Punch" 13 December 1978
From a set of cartons about the effect of trade unions in the theatre. Here you have a vote by actors. And how are they going to indicate their choices? Why, by holding up some rather limp wrists. With hands on hips, simpering leers, and that rather effete stance I can’t quite find the right description for. I suppose homosexuals en masse is also supposed to be funny, like Monty Python’s camp platoon http://ukjarry.blogspot.com/2007/11/4-queens-of-england.html or Jak’s squad http://ukjarry.blogspot.com/2008/12/193-jeremy-thorpe-11.html
