Waterstones presents Jake Shears in conversation 

At this special event the lead singer of multiplatinum-selling glam rock band Scissor Sisters and one of the World’s most famous LGBTQ icons will discuss his beautifully wide-eyed and determined coming-of-age memoir: Boys Keep Swinging with award winning journalist and author, Matthew Todd 

Before becoming lead singer with the Scissor Sisters, Jake Shears was Jason Sellards, just a kid with an unfathomable imagination and a love of He-Man dolls.

Splitting life between Arizona and the Pacific West Coast, his childhood was marked by school bullies and the terror of the rise and misunderstanding surrounding the AIDS virus.

With changes in age and geography Shears gradually found a sense of belonging - first in Seattle, then in the street life and lights of New York City in the late 90s where, with friends and musicians also thirsting for freedom and the stage, he would form Scissor Sisters and go on to sell out venues worldwide.

`The purpose of my life is to entertain. It's a constant feedback loop.'

Tickets: £26, includes admission and a copy of Boys Keep Swinging (RRP £20) or £10 general admission
