Journey to the Rainbow’s End: A Drag Queen’s Odyssey
KT “Treat” International Literary Award 2019 “Honorable Mention” Recipient
“A collection of poetry that describes the coming of age and coming out of a man who struggled with his self worth and identity, in the hopes to show others who share similar struggles that they are not alone.”
This collection is inspired by my lifetime journey in personal acceptance. It reflects my journey in being true to myself and finding my own personal voice in an effort to help others who may feel defeated or lost. I know others struggle with the same battle. This reflects my own coming out story. In it I hope my readers find peace, self-adoration, and self-respect, while we share this journey together. “Journey to the Rainbow’s End” captures the essence of “coming out” and coming of age as a gay male today, and over the past three decades, as well as, discusses the joys of love, the pain of heartbreak, surviving the darkness of suicide, and the self-discovery of finding one’s voice and place in society.
There is no such thing as poetic justice, just poetry in motion through our lifetime, no matter the joy or the pain. This is my first collection of poetic works and prose about my own personal journey through life. I believe my story is universal with others who have felt like a lost soul once or twice in their lifetime.
