The Black Flamingo (Kobo eBook)

The Black Flamingo By Dean Atta Cover Image
Available Now


Winner of the Stonewall Book Award: a YA verse novel about coming of age, being yourself, and the power of drag.

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.

As he gets older, Michael’s coming out is only the start of learning who he is and where he fits in. When he discovers the Drag Society, he finally finds where he belongs—and the Black Flamingo is born.

Told with raw honesty, insight, and lyricism, this debut novel explores the layers of identity that make us who we are—and allow us to shine.
