The central character is 6-year old Andrew, a smart, sensitive, boy with gender-atypical interests that constantly startle or offend everyone around him. He lip-synchs to Whitney Houston and the Village People, plays with Barbie dolls, studies ballet (in a tutu).
He decides to befriend Peter Pan even though Royboy warns that Peter Pan is a “fairy,” homophobic slang for “gay.
Sometimes Royboy just comes right out and calls him a "fairy."
He is usually unfazed by the bemusement or contempt of his family and friends. When Royboy complains, “You’re not normal.” Andrew responds: “Why be normal when you can be happy?”
