Pretty Boy Blue

From playing house as a child to her first kiss as a teenager, Nikki Blue knew that she was different from other girls. One day her slice of the American dream would include a white picket fence and a wife.

Despite her father’s abandonment and her mother’s denial, Nikki is determined to discover her truest self. She stumbles through adolescence with the visage of a debutante and the attitude of a cocksure college boy. To escape being bullied in school, Nikki finds solace in the Washington, DC, gay and lesbian club scene. Flamboyant gay men and drag queens teach her the nuances of being fierce.
