Words by Ian McKellen
What a lark to play myself in a fictional story! The lesbian lovers travel from London to participate in the 4th Gay Games held in New York in 1994 Their friend Steffi (James Dreyfus) follows them, having met me briefly in London. I accompany him to the Ice Skating Championships to watch the lovers participate. Neither of the actresses is gay but, using their characters' names, they entered for the championship as a lesbian couple. In the audience at the ice-rink, only James and I knew their secret.
