Life as a Unicorn by Amrou Al-Kadhi

Life as a Unicorn by Amrou Al-Kadhi

£9.99Price

A heart-breaking and hilarious memoir about the author’s fight to be true to themself...

 

Amrou knew they were gay when, aged ten, they first laid eyes on Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone. It was love at first sight.

 

Amrou’s parents weren’t so happy…

 

From that moment on, Amrou began searching in all the wrong places for ways to make their divided self whole again.

 

Life as a Unicorn is a hilarious yet devastating story of a search for belonging, following the painful and surprising process of transforming from a god-fearing Muslim boy to a queer drag queen, strutting the stage in seven-inch heels and saying the things nobody else dares to….
