Hints That Billy Elliot is a Poufter


*He keeps saying “I’m not a poufter!”

*Takes a pass on the offer to see a girl’s “hoo-hoo” (Been there.)

*Dances a romantic duet with a hot man (supposedly himself as an adult, but still, it reads as an intergenerational pas de deux)

*And finally….SPOILER ALERT!!!! Kisses his drag queen best friend goodbye before leaving town. In fact, it’s the last thing he does!

Oh, yeah, did I mention his best friend is a pint-sized, sexually aggressive cross dresser? Case closed!
