The Rainbow Tiger

Bk Wells

Meet Gene Francisco, the world's most reluctant superhero. She's spent her entire life perfecting the art of cowardice, dodging confrontation like a pro, and watching injustice unfold from the sidelines. But when the far-right President, Benjamin Buck, gets re-elected and threatens to turn the progressive Golden City into a dystopian nightmare, Gene's lifelong apathy takes an unexpected turn. Gene's underwhelming life as a City Hall bureaucrat is turned upside-down when a shocking BART mishap leaves them transforming uncontrollably from male to female and back again. Gene is forced to confront her long-suppressed transgenderism and the harsh reality that she might be the only one who can stop Buck and his legion of conservative fanatics. But can a lifelong coward find the strength to stand up for what's right, or will she continue to hide in the shadows while the world crumbles around her?

As fascist leaders rip away LGBTQ+ rights and convert the city into a dystopian hellscape, Gene reinvents themselves into The Rainbow Tiger-the unlikeliest champion The Golden City never knew it needed. Gene embarks on a hilarious journey to save Golden City from the clutches of the far-right. Aided by a ragtag gang of allies including Kane Hall, a foul-mouthed elderly sidekick on crutches, drag queen, Anita Tequila, and a murder of heroic ravens, The Rainbow Tiger embarks on a sidesplitting crusade to take down the evil President Benjamin Buck.

Brimming with irreverent humor, unforgettable characters, and a timely exploration of gender identity, The Rainbow Tiger is a quirky, thrilling underdog tale about finding the courage to stand up for yourself and fight for a more colorful world. In a city under siege, The Rainbow Tiger proves that each one of us can be a hero and that freedom lies in being bold. Get ready for an uproarious, gender-bending adventure featuring wedgie-inducing costumes, high-octane Cutty Bang cocktails, and an epic showdown in a composting facility!

Praise for this book

"Written with thoughtful provocative relevance and propulsive prose, this novel gets to the heart and soul of the queer community and sounds an alarm for what could happen if we don't vote or participate in queer equality activism."

Jim Piechota, San Francisco Bay Area Reporter
