"A Peacock Among Pigeons" is an LGBT-themed hardback children's book that tells the tale of learning how to stand out when you can't fit in. This children's story teaches the importance of celebrating our differences and learning to love the feathers you live in.
Peter the peacock doesn't know how it happened, but he found himself growing up in a flock of pigeons. Surrounded by a world of grey, he found himself feeling less than his peers and embarrassed by the feathers. After he fails to blend in, he decides that it's time to learn to fly on his own. Along the way, he meets new bird friends from all different flocks that teach him a lesson he will never forget.
Once the funding is raised for "A Peacock Among the Pigeons," the book will be distributed across the country to LGBT youth organizations and it will be used as a tool to help children who have been teased, picked on, or bullied to find confidence, learn to love who they are and celebrate what makes them special.

Instead of going through a publishing company, Clarione and Tyler felt that it was important to have the community invest in a book that has the potential to reach children, both young and old, who have been bullied and made to feel bad about themselves.
Both Clarione and Tyler has a long history of working with national LGBT organizations and are committed to getting "A Peacock Among Pigeons" in the hands of any adult or child who needs it. Both men have a track record of producing LGBT-themed stories for national publishing companies and are wholly dedicated to making this book a major success.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
