DRAGULA is a tale filled with sensitivity to personal struggle, raucous humor and musical entertainment. Peter, a vulnerable young man, makes the decision to transition, becoming the gender and human being he was meant to be. However, the Right Reverend Bobby Swagger is determined to prove by whatever means necessary that Peter’s lifestyle and entertainment choices of the drag performer Dragula are sinful and wrong. Finally, Peter finds the courage to take an uncompromising stand against bigotry, proving that it’s all right to be true to yourself, no matter what lifestyle you choose.
According to the audiobook award-winning narrator and writer, John Arthur Long, DRAGULA: A Transgender Tale conveys a message that is clearly and uncompromisingly stated by the main character: “Bigotry, the inability to tolerate the differences in others, is one of the great flaws of our society!” Moreover, he states that when presenting entertainment that represents individuals of the LGBTQIA+ community, he has endeavored to be sensitive to the courage these individuals have shown and empathetic to what they have endured by living in a manner that allows them to be true to themselves.
John Arthur Long has pursued a professional writing career that has resulted in several successfully published novels as well as being active as a voiceover artist and audiobook narrator.
