Spike Gerrell’s hilarious illustrations feature in James Dawson’s This Book is Gay, published this month by Hot Key Books. It’s a funny and pertinent book about what it’s like to grow up being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or just curious and Spike’s images are the perfect foil for James’ wit and wisdom. This book smashes the myths and prejudices surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity and tells it how it really is, using the testimonies of more than three hundred LGBT people.
The reviews are glowing and our particular favourite is by Book Bitch who says: “There aren’t many books that I’ve stayed up until three am to finish reading, but this was one of the books. Every page was educational, but it wasn’t hard for the brain. The comical touches made the information so much easier to soak up, plus it came with awesome illustrations.”
