Product description

Shortlisted for the 2020 Carnegie Medal.

A passionate poetry novel about a gay drag artist finding his wings. Sometimes courage is wearing pink feathers and parading in flamboyant colour… Growing up isn’t easy: school, friendship, first love, one day leaving home. And for the boy in this book, there’s the added complexity of coming to terms with his identity as a mixed-race gay teenager. Until, at university, he finds his wings as a drag artist, The Black Flamingo. In the past, he’s been laughed at and put down. Now he masquerades in make-up and pink feathers, and he is applauded…

  • A bold, joyful story about embracing your uniqueness
  • Fiercely told in lyrical free verse by top poet Dean Atta
  • For fans of Alex Gino, Kwame Alexander and The Poet X
  • Dean Atta is one of the most exciting poets in the UK today
  • His work explores topics of race, gender and LGBTQ+ identity
  • He was named “one of poetry’s greatest modern voices” by Gay Times
