The Black Penguin (Living Out: Gay and Lesbian Autobiog) (Hardcover)
As an awkward gay kid-bullied, bored, and eventually ejected from the Mormon Church-Andrew Evans escaped into the glossy pages of National Geographic and the wide promise of the world atlas. The Black Penguin chronicles his journey riding public transportation toward his ultimate goal: Antarctica. Part memoir, part travel tale, and part love story, with each new mile comes laughter, pain, unexpected friendships, true weirdness, and hair-raising moments that eventually lead to a singular discovery on a remote beach at the bottom of the world.
