‘I am the black flamingo. The black flamingo is me trying to find myself.’

Dean Atta is an exciting poet and performer, based in Glasgow, named one of the most influential LGBT people in the UK by the Independent on Sunday. The Black Flamingo  – longlisted for the Jhalak Prize and the Carnegie Medal, and winner of the Stonewall Book Award – is a young adult novel in verse that follows a mixed-race gay teenager as he heads off to university and discovers his place in the world as a drag performer. We’re thrilled to offer this audio taster of the novel, just released in paperback.
