This book was written to bring inspiration and hope to anyone who may need positive affirmation to love the life they live, or for anyone who needs to understand first-hand what it can be like to fight, a sometimes losing battle, for self acceptance. Whoever the reader, it shows that it is possible to overcome extreme adversity and survive those horrendous experiences which seem determined to destroy us.

'A truly inspiring story!' - PFLAG Australia

'It's real. It's honest. It's Skye High's own perilous adventure to discovering and becoming herself. It hasn't been an easy road, but Skye's tale is both compelling and hopeful. We need more empowering stories like this.' - Matt Akersten, National Editor, SameSame.com.au

"In a world where society dictates 'right' from 'wrong', a young boy struggles with the pressure of living up to the expectations of others. Desperately seeking acceptance and finding only rejection, he is isolated and on the brink of despair.

There seems to be no escape from the years of relentless school ground bullying and victimization he suffers, which at times, is almost too much to bare. He feels as though his spirit has been crushed, but this young scared boy still harbors a burning desire to break free and be true to himself.

Later in life, a tremendous, gut-wrenching loss would set him on another course, and a journey of true self discovery. Armed with the knowledge of his past experiences, his eyes are opened to a wonderland of pleasures, and through determination and sacrifice, he leaves a life of secrecy and sexual defiance behind him.

Discovering the world of drag, he becomes more of a man than he thought he would be, and more of a women than he thought he ever could be. From Darkness To Diva is an empowering tale of overcoming fear and insecurity, with an uplifting message of triumph."
