An activity book for anyone from 13 to 73 who thinks they might be different - by writer, illustrator, LGBTQ+ activist and utterly fabulous merman, Dom&Ink.
Coming out is one of the biggest moments a young person can go through. This book will ensure they'll never have to go through it alone.
I'm Just Me is a safe space to pour out thoughts, feelings and reactions. Every page is packed with activities, advice, colour and sass, with spreads to colour, scribble, brainstorm, design and glitter. Write the letter to your parents that you've always wanted to; read brilliant affirmations and quotes; and find out how to throw your own Pride Prom.
Learn all about LGBTQ+ culture and the history of gay rights; find out where to seek support and advice in your area; and read Dom's real-life coming-out story. And meet dancing drag queens, rainbow donuts, mermaids and unicorns and the world's sassiest LGBTQ+ dinosaur: Brett the Sassysaurus!
Warm, hilarious, caring and insightful, I'm Just Me will fill every reader with self-esteem, confidence and pride. This isn't just an activity book. It's something you talk to, you come out to, and - most importantly - you see your true self within its rainbow-coloured pages.
About the Illustrator
Dom&Ink (Dominic Evans) is a freelance illustrator and merman based in London, from not-so-sunny Bolton, via Narnia. Growing up with a love of Buffy, short shorts and Starlight Express, Dom, like many others, struggled to fit in at school, in life, and mainly with himself. However, he soon found his voice through his passion for illustration and stories. This led him on a path to illustrate for large brands, stores, clients and agencies.
Dom currently lives in East London and spends his time immersing himself in a graphic novel or an amazing book and then creating illustrations that he hopes will make your day and make you slay.
