Ian spent many years working the gay cabaret circuit in both London and the South East. His book, A Marvellous Party, weaves together the coming-of-age (and coming out) story of a young boy in 1970s Britain with anecdotes of meeting his heroes: Quentin Crisp, Ian McKellen, Armistead Maupin, Donny Osmond, amongst others. The book shares stories that are told with warmth, affection, humor, and insight. Currently in its third printing, A Marvellous Party was longlisted for the Polari Prize upon first publication.
