TIP-ex is about a woman who takes the audience back to her teenage years when she started to realise that she was attracted to the same sex. When she mentions this to her conservative family, outrage breaks out and everything changes. As still happens today, she is sent to confirmation classes to ‘fix’ the ‘problem’.
