Also — copies of the “Nonbinary”, the minicomic I was drawing during the break, are still for for sale for those interested!
Little preview of the piece I drew for the TJ and Amal fanbook. ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE BOOK BECAUSE I AM
It’s here! “Nonbinary”, my new minicomic about coming out/living life as a person of nonbinary gender, is available for purchase on Gumroad! It’s got 16 pages of full-color autobio comics, features a wraparound die-cut cover, and is only $5. You can even get it signed if you want! WHATTA DEAL!
In addition: if you’re a nonbinary/genderqueer/trans person who wants a copy but (for reasons of age/finances/etc.) can’t afford the $5, I’m also offering a limited number of free copies here. This one’s on the honor system, folks — if you’re cis, or have the economic means to pay for your copy, please be nice and leave these for other people to claim!
Thanks, everybody! I’m really proud of this comic, and can’t wait to share it with you all!
QUEER COMICS 4EVERRRRRRRRR
The nonbinary comics are real! Even my cats love them!
If you’re going to SDCC, look for ‘em at the PRISM booth, or track me down in person! I’ll be speaking on the Transgender Trends in Popular Culture panel Thursday at 5 in room 28DE, and will also be around Friday night for the Eisner ceremony.
A couple panels I like from the minicomic about nonbinary gender I’m working on. Still on track to hopefully have copies by SDCC! (And in the meanwhile, all the pages are being posted to my patreon as I finish ‘em — up to 12 now!)
i just want to say that if your identity is influenced by trauma or mental illness or what have you it doesn’t make that identity any less valid or real, it doesn’t mean your identity is ‘wrong’ or has to be ‘fixed’
there are definite cases of people whose gender are resultant of traumatic experiences or mental illness or other such situations and those people still deserve to have their genders (or other such identities) respected
I tweaked the text in the original post a little bit to (hopefully!) make it clearer that the comic’s meant to be making fun of people who buy into the blanket generalization that all trans people’s genders are sourced to trauma — not replacing that generalization with the equally false one that *no* trans person has ever had a gender sourced to trauma.
Apologies for unclear wording!
