Layton Williams is today’s #BlackHistoryMonth LGBT+ hero, nominated by our head of entertainment Joe who says … “Layton is a brilliant performer, including iconic LGBT+ roles on stage and screen including Angel (Rent), Jamie (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) and Kylie (Beautiful People) He was here in Norwich recently with Hair at Interlude. Not only awesomely talented, his extravagance and boundless energy through many iconic LGBT+ roles on screen and stage has inspired many of all ages particularly young people to be uniquely themselves, so they can be as fierce as he is.”
