            'I marked the day in my adolescent diary with a single blank page.' 'The mantle of queer migrant compelled me to keep going - to go further.' 'I never came out to my parents. I felt I owed them no explanation.' 'All I heard from the pulpit were grim hints.' 'I became acutely awar...e of the parts of myself that were unpalatable to queers who grew up in the city.' 'I was thirty-eight and figured it was time to come out to her.' 'That's when I know it's not going anywhere - the gay.' 'I felt like I had been dunked into an episode of The L Word and I wasn't given the script.' 'No amount of YouTube videos and queer think pieces prepared me for this moment.' 'My queerness was born in a hot dry land that was never ceded.' 'I finally admitted what my feelings for Dirty Dancing-era Patrick Swayze had clearly been indicating for some time.' 'Even now, I sometimes think that I don't know my own desire.' Compiled by celebrated author and journalist Benjamin Law, Growing Up Queer in Australia assembles voices from across the spectrum of LGBTQIA+ identity. Spanning diverse places, eras, genders, ethnicities and experiences, these are the stories of growing up queer in Australia. 'For better or worse, sooner or later, life conspires to reveal you to yourself, and this is growing up.' With contributions from David Marr, Fiona Wright, Nayuka Gorrie, Steve Dow, Holly Throsby, Sally Rugg, Tony Ayres, Nic Holas, Rebecca Shaw, Giselle Au Nguyen and many more.

            Black is the New White

            'Nakkiah Lui's writing is, as always, on point: hold-your-belly funny; pumping with politics that prompts visible discomfort.' Maxine Beneba Clark, Saturday Paper 'Her writing, whether devastating or hilarious, has always shown a great deal of accessible humanity and relentless i...ntelligence.' Guardian 'We needed a new David Williamson, someone who speaks to Australia and Australians now. We've found her in Nakkiah.' Alex Broun, playwright 'Mount Druitt's answer to Lena Dunham.' Belvoir Theatre 'If there is such a thing as a rockstar playwright, Nakkiah Lui is it.' Fran Kelly, RN Love, politics and other things you shouldn't talk about at dinner Charlotte Gibson is a lawyer with a brilliant career ahead of her. As her father Ray says, she could be the next female Indigenous Waleed Aly. But she has other ideas. First of all, it's Christmas. Second of all, she's in love. The thing is, her fiance, Francis Smith, is not what her family expected - he's unemployed, he's an experimental composer... and he's white! Bringing him and his conservative parents to meet her family on their ancestral land is a bold move. Will he stand up to the scrutiny? Or will this romance descend into farce? Love is never just black and white. It's complicated by class, politics, ambition, and too much wine over dinner. But for Charlotte and Francis, it's mostly complicated by family. Secrets are revealed, prejudices outed and old rivalries get sorted through. What can't be solved through diplomacy can surely be solved by a good old-fashioned dance-off. They're just that kind of family. Award-winning writer Nakkiah Lui shows why she is one of this country's most in-demand young voices, delivering cutting satire that is both seductively subversive and thoroughly delightful.
