New Comic! Is My Binary Showing Pt. 1
Anything That Loves - 12 days left!
Y’all! I’m super excited to be in this amazing anthology: Anything That Loves! It’s a collection of comics talking about non-straight and non-gay sexualities - so bi, pan, queer, omni, wibbly-wobbly, and all the other fantastic words that we use to describe our sexualities. It’s trans and genderqueer friendly too, and has one of my comics in it! And it’s all...

Upward Spiral: Maybe my child is trans, maybe he... →
babblingbeth: I have a three year old child who has a male body. He* has also recently become very assertive that he’s not always a boy. He says that sometimes he’s a boy, sometimes he’s a girl and sometimes he’s what he terms a “girlboy”. When he tells us this we just smile and say “okay” and use the correct…

I want my communities to count
I have a weird love of filling out forms, but filling in the census forms makes me depressed. klutzygeek said: hon, you’ll probably need to upload that as not-a-tiff for it to show for most people. (also a group of us wrote in asking for other gender options and were explicitly told “if you mark neither or both we will guess from your name”.) Oh yes - that’s lucky that my name is...

I lived in Dunedin for about 8 years. It is an amazing place, and I found many people there who are now part of my Queer Family (including Joe!). Dunedin is a small town in the South Island of New Zealand, and is fairly rural. My cool friends are now organising a Dunedin Pride! I can’t stress how important it is to have a pride festival in Dunedin!! I think it’ll be amazing, PLUS Joe...
My Friend is a Superhero
A while back I wrote about illustrating a book with Barbara Pike and Philip Patston.

You can help us out, and score some cool swag (including art by me, and your chance to be drawn as a super hero!!) Watch me being awkward in the promo video! Check out...
Does anyone have any resources for trans people about body positivity? Accepting your body even if it doesn’t completely fit in with how you’d want it to be? Dysphoria stuff?

erikamoen: PHEW! It took me ages and it’s not perfect, but here is the recording of my Queering Up Comics talk I gave at Yale University earlier this month!
