(Drag) Queen of Scots

(Drag) Queen of Scots

The hilarious and heartwarming memoir from the UK’s favourite drag queen


Brought to you by Penguin.

The hilarious memoir from everyone's favourite Scottish drag queen and winner of RuPaul's Drag Race UK, Lawrence Chaaaaaaney.

Lawrence Chaney is a testament to the strength that comes from drag. Lawrence (Drag) Queen of Scots celebrates the little boy learning to sew at age seven and their journey to taking the UK by storm. From growing up as the gay class clown and being bullied to finding an outlet in performance and drag, celebrating both their outer curves and inner beauty.

The book will showcase valuable life lessons and tricks of the trade, all told in Chaney's trademark charming style, and will resonate with anyone who holds dreams and aspirations that are bigger than the town they grew up in.

'Gorgeous, hugely talented, funny, charismatic, adorable, Chaney is a goddess and brings us joy.' - Lorraine

'Lawrence Chaney is the funniest queen by a country mile. She has delivered the laughs a locked down nation needed in abundance. But there's much more to Chaney than her quick wit. Her vulnerability is also part of her natural gift.' - Vogue
