“Inclusive and beautifully written”, Glitter Boy tells the story of James, an 11-year-old boy who loves dancing, poetry and Mariah Carey and is desperately trying to find his place in the world. As well as trying to deal with homophobic bullying, James is also experiencing turmoil in his life which he’s struggling to understand and express.

Emotional, moving, joyous and heart-warming, Glitter Boy depicts James’ emotions and struggles on his journey of self-discovery, whilst conveying an important message of acceptance, friendship, love and well-being.
