As part of our month-long collaboration with Apple throughout July, join poet and drag queen Dean Atta to explore how metaphors are used to bring us closer to the truth.
You’ll discover how Atta uses his personal metaphor, The Black Flamingo, as inspiration for his drag persona. Then you’ll find your own persona to put into a poem using an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil.
Dean Atta has been named one of the most influential LGBTQ people in the UK by Independent on Sunday. He performs across the UK and internationally and is a judge for the BBC Young Writers’ Award.
