Laverne Cox and Lorraine Toussaint (Vee Parker) to Star in ‘Freak Show’ Film

LCFreak Show, adapted from the James St. James award-winning eponymous novel, explores the life of Billy Bloom, a cross-dressing teen who has recently moved. His new uber-conservative high school makes it difficult for him to maintain his “outlandish” style of dress and behavior, yet he manages to stay strong as he remains true to himself, eventually running for homecoming queen.

 

St. James’ novel was a Lambda Literary Award nominee in the LGBT children’s/young adult category. This book was also nominated for the Lambda Literary Award for gay men’s debut fiction.
