Transgender Web Comic Topics

 The farther we transgender women and transgender men find ourselves mentioned in a positive nature in all sectors of the community, the better we are. This post came from Sarah in a Googles Plus group I'm in called "Exclusively Transgender"


"Okay, I don't know how many of you read webcomics, but I am an avid reader. I read several hundred. Including a few that are focused on the transgender experience. Unfortunately, most of those not very well known, or popular. But recently, two very popular webcomics added transgender characters to their casts. Supporting cast in one case, yes, but this is still wonderful news. Thousands and thousands of people read these comics. We are getting our stories told by wonderful, sensitive allies. People are learning, becoming more informed, and hopefully becoming more accepting. If you read comics at all, you should check these out."

As I said Sarah, I agree with you! Thanks! Follow the excerpt below for the links.



"A year ago, in this strip: http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2324 , Claire of QC was revealed to be transgender. She's been on HRT since she began college. And in today's shocker on Dumbing of Age: http://www.dumbingofage.com/2013/comic/book-3/04-just-hangin-out-with-my-family/writer/ , Joyce's "brother" "Joshua", is revealed to be Jocelyne, a transwoman totally in the closet, thanks to being the favorite 'son' of a fundamentalist Christian family."
