About The Beyonce Experience
Aaron Carty gave up a career as a police officer to live his dream of becoming a positive role model for the black queer community as a Beyonce drag act. We follow Aaron’s struggle in running a media agency full time, producing and performing 'The Beyonce Experience' but still finding time to volunteer for a controversial movement with UK Black Pride.
