As it is a common discussion in researches, tabloids and in the television, the awareness and understanding of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals (LGBT) has become the latest trend. With this, young writer prodigy Prisca Christina Yue pens a juvenile fiction book, titled “The Lesbian” (published by Xlibris AU), that attempts to give light on the increasing cases of LGBT/same-sex marriage and the associated bullying especially in the school setting. In this tale, two good friends will undergo situations and challenges they would have never expected to happen to them.
This book tells the story of the friendship between Gianna and Sapphire. The two have been good friends since pre-school and have maintained a firm relationship. Sapphire is a beautiful and very popular student. She always wears her hair in a long side braid every time she went to school. One day however, she came to school with a shaved head, much to the surprise of everyone. After being confronted by her classmates, Sapphire admitted to be a lesbian. As the news spread around her school, Sapphire’s popularity soon waned. People began to bully her and no one was willing to help, including her best friend Gianna. One day, Sapphire finally told Gianna the shocking truth behind her shaved head.
Yue springs her plot and characters from lessons taken from school and the real life. She aims on starting an awareness of the negative effects of bullying and educating readers, especially the young and teenaged, of the rights of everyone regardless of gender or preference.
