St. Sukie de la Croix will release the novel The Blue Spong and the Flight from Mediocrity in July.
The work is described in a press release as "a humorous historical fantasy that showcases the follies of heteronormative, misogynistic, repressive life."
de la Croix is a writer and photographer most widely known for his book Chicago Whispers: A History of LGBT Chicago Before Stonewall. His works have explored the underground cultures and aspects of Chicago's LGBT community dating back to the 1970s. He has been inducted into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame.
