ABOUT I AM A PRINCE BOOK
An Inclusive LGBTQIA+ Children's Book
The Book, 'I Am A Prince' was created by Damien Alan Lopez, a transgender man who grew up in Newark, NJ. He attended culinary school in Jersey City, and completed his Bachelor of Science for Nutrition and Food Sciences at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey. He is currently in the works of becoming a Career and Technical Educator for inner city students. He also works as Transgender Advocate, and completes seminars that assist with Trans inclusion and the experience of being Trans.
"A story like this, means a lot to me. I grew up in a Hispanic Household where anything considered gay was shunned upon. I grew up without accurate Trans representation. It was only when I made it to college, I starting seeing more of the LGBTQIA+ Community.
To create something for kids like this makes me super happy that we are moving in a different direction with the gender diversity and expression topic inclusion in children's books.
I hope this book inspires and comforts those who it is intended for.
We see you.
We hear you.
We love you.
You are valid."
