  5. Documentary airs on teen in school drag act ban

    A Black Country teenager who was banned from performing in full drag at his school last year is hoping his appearance on a BBC television show will help inspire others who are struggling to be accepted.

    Lewis Bailey

    Last year, Castle High School and Visual Arts College in Dudley told Lewis Bailey his act was not permitted, saying it felt the performance was not "appropriate".

    Speaking in the programme, Lewis said: "Drag is amazing for me. All the negativity just disappears. I'm on that stage in front of people. It makes me feel like I'm wanted in the world.

    The episode from the My Life series will be broadcast on CBBC at 17:30 later and available to view on the BBC iPlayer.
