Venus as a Boy is a 2004 fiction novella by Scottish writer and musician Luke Sutherland. It is set briefly in South Ronaldsay, Orkney, an island off the coast of Scotland though it is largely set in Soho, London. The author purports to tell the posthumous story of Désirée, who apparently was a clandestine peer of his growing up in South Ronadsay. Désirée's audio-recorded memoirs presented to the novel's author by Désirée's friend and confidant Pascal serve as the narrative throughout majority of the story.
