Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has written The Boy With Pink Hair, a book for children that "celebrates individuality and self-acceptance," according to a statement released to the press. Hilton says the book is inspired by his "desire to promote equality in readers of all ages."
"I am absolutely elated about this book, which comes from a very dear and genuine place within me," Hilton says in the statement. "While I can identify in many ways with The Boy With Pink Hair, he represents so much more. This story is about every kid that's ever had a dream, felt excluded, wanted to belong, and hoped that one day they could do what they loved and make a difference. Today, with this book, that's exactly what I feel I have the opportunity to do. I hope everyone can share in the spirit of a boy that only wants to bring some happiness to the world around him."
The book will be published by Celebra Children's Books in September with a first printing of 75,000.
