Gay singer Sam Buttery has spoken out on proving himself as a musical performer after starring on the UK version of The Voice.
The 20-year-old British singer is currently performing as 80s legend Leigh Bowery in the Boy George musical Taboo.
Speaking to Amy Lamé for HomoLAB, Buttery said: ‘It feels really exciting. It feels really scary, and it feels like I want to prove myself because I haven’t been to drama school.
‘I’ve been in a reality TV program, and people go “Oh no”.'
