June means Pride month in the U.K. and around the world, celebrating the LGBTQ+ community. Since 1969, Pride month has honoured and reflected on the LGBTQ+ community, the struggles they have faced, and the joys of living as their truest selves. Although it is important to recognise and support the LGBTQ+ community all year round, this month is the perfect opportunity to recognise and showcase the amazing theatre work based on and created by queer people.

There is currently a huge selection of theatre in London that showcases LGBTQ+ themes, relationships, and experiences. This list is your ultimate guide to Pride on the West End, to show the inclusivity it has to offer.

A Strange Loop - 1200 - LT

A Strange Loop

Where better place to start than with a genre-bending musical that received 11 Tony Award nominations (and won two) in New York? A Strange Loop showcases a queer, Black man, Usher, as he’s trying to write a “big-ass Broadway musical.” Throughout his creative process, and alongside some tricky relationship pursuits, a six-person Greek chorus represents the negative voices in his head that he battles with.

This Pultizer Prize winner tackles difficult topics such as racism and homophobia with an extremely catchy score and humorous notes throughout. You’ll definitely be humming the tunes of this musical-within-a-musical on your way out!

Brokeback Mountain - LT - 1200

Brokeback Mountain

The stage premiere of the blockbuster film showcases a strong connection forming between two cowboys and how they deal with these new emotions. Brokeback Mountain offers a raw look at two queer men, Ennis and Jack, as they struggle to open up about their unexpected feelings in a community that isn’t accepting of homosexual relationships. Dan Gillespie-Sells’s earnest country and Western songs weave together this heartbreaking tale that stars Mike Faist and Lucas Hedges, both in their West End debuts.
