Fiercely told, this is a powerful coming-of-age story told in verse, from one of the UK's leading poets, Dean Atta.
Perfect for fans of Sarah Crossan and Poet X. A boy comes to terms with his identity as a mixed-race gay teen - then at university he finds his wings as a drag artist, The Black Flamingo.
A bold story about the power of embracing your uniqueness.
Sometimes, we need to take charge, to stand up wearing pink feathers - to show ourselves to the world in bold colour. 'I masquerade in makeup and feathers and I am applauded.'"A bold and joyous hymn to self-discovery and acceptance" The Bookseller
