The Black Flamingo: LGBTQ+ book club discussion
April 1, 2022, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A week later than usual, the Lambeth Libraries LGBTQ+ Book Club discusses The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta.
A fierce coming-of-age verse novel about identity and the power of drag, from acclaimed poet and performer Dean Atta. 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.
