Written & Performed by Ben Strothmann
Directed by Mark Finley
The super-awkward coming-of-age story of a boy who became a man who became the unthinkable. Coming Clean traces Ben Strothmann’s often comical and compelling journey from growing up gay in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to his adult adventures as New York became his “sexual playground”. As a kid, he discovered he was gay when he started developing crushes on cartoon characters, like Foghorn Leghorn and the Pink Panther. And then there’s the time when Strothmann openly declared his love for another boy… in first grade. Through this tale of embarrassing childhood memories, hilarious misunderstandings, and bittersweet brushes with fate, he shares his journey of self-discovery, and how he learned to love himself exactly as he is.
