PERFORATED CITY

This is an old “24-hour comic” I made on the isolation I’ve experienced as a trans person. Technically it’s a failed attempt, because I didn’t complete it within the required 24 hour period. But I ended deciding to finish it anyways because I thought it said something important on an issue that’s hardly talked about.

  1. Wow, that’s some great artwork! How did you come up with the idea of illustrating the whole things by connecting perforations?

    Here in Austin, TX, we have a lot of folks who are very accepting, but I’m sure there’s a lot of what you mention also. It’s difficult because this is so new to so many people. I hope the trans community continues to find more acceptance.

  2. Thank you for the like!

    Yeah, I was in the shower, lol! That’s where I get most of my best ideas.

    I wrote that story back in 2013 when I had just moved in to Montreal, which is officially one of the most tolerant cities in north america. But I have to say that back then, I was in a more vulnerable time of my life. My friends and family had pretty much all turned their backs to me. Also, I was still deeply, deeply, traumatized by the harassment I had experienced at work. So all of that ended up creating a situation where each negative experience hurt me more deeply than it should have. Luckily, I’m doing a lot better now, I guess that having some support makes a world of a difference. : )
