The Black Flamingo

By: Dean Atta

This is not about
being ready,
it’s not even about
being fierce
or fearless,
IT’S ABOUT BEING FREE.


Michael is a mixed-race gay teen growing up in London. All his life, he’s navigated what it means to be Greek-Cypriot and Jamaican—but never quite feeling Greek or Black enough.

A fierce coming-of-age novel about identity and the power of drag, from acclaimed UK poet and performer Dean Atta.
