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.

 

 

Netflix needs to add a “trans” section

netflix trans

First off, I’d like to congratulate Netflix on adding sex-reassignment surgery as one of the health benefits they offer to their employees. That is really awesome of them to do so.

But that leaves the question of what is it they’re offering in terms of search options, to their users that are trans? Finding movies and tv shows that relate to trans-identity on netflix, is a pain. There’s a section for gays and lesbians, and that’s great for them, but there’s nothing for us.  Trans related content shows up in various other categories, and it’s being left to us to go on an archeological search to dig up their hidden treasures. Are they ashamed of us?

To me it doesn’t make sense. On top of the few dozens of trans related movies and tv shows they already have listed, they also produce original content with amazingly well-written trans, and gender non-conforming characters ( Sense8, Knights of Sidonia, Orange is the new black ). Don’t they want to keep us as customers? And if so, wouldn’t it make sense that they add a category that makes it easy for us to find the content we’re looking for?

What do you  think? Feel free to vote on the poll below or to write your opinion in the comment section.

Trans characters in videogames

From Poison being turned into a trans woman so that the proucers of Final Fight would have an excuse to justify having male characters beating up women, to Birdo in Super Mario being retconned into a full female, there has been alot of different charcters in video games that are trans. This time around, I decided to try something different. This article is opened to all readers who might want suggest which TG ( transgender ) characters should be talked about. Suggestions can be added in the comments section and can also be emailed to contactt4d@gmail.com.

 

NATNOTE: I intend to update this article as time goes on, and as soon as I get a new laptop. Thanks for bearing with me. :)

 

The need for a Queer Salute

flagge-regenbogen

So, it looks like we won’t be boycotting the upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympics. Bummer. But, why would we? With all that gender-segregated, celebration of the  different aspects of the human body, the Olympics are already very, very, gay.

So I’ve been thinking, we need to come up with a universally recognized gesture that symbolizes support for LGBT people, in Russia, and around the world. Something that athletes can do at the games if they want to show support for us in a non-verbal way. A “Queer Salute” if you will. Something  we can also use once the games are over too.

So, I`m holding a poll on the subject.  And, in no particular order, here are some potential choices:

OPTION-A ” LIMP-WRISTED ”

model AA new spin on established queer body language. That bent wrist says: “I’m Queer and I’m proud”, the left hand on your chest says that you’re saying it from the heart.

OPTION-B, ” I heart PINK TRIANGLE ”

model BModern, and self-explanatory. A little less outlandish, but also more likely to appeal to our straight allies.

OPTION-C  Sign Language for the “G”

sign language G

A write-in suggestions with a certain flair.

OPTION-D   The Japanese gesture

Another stylish write-in option.

OPTION-E  The Write-in. You send your sketch or pic, with the title of your pose to: queersalute@gmail.com

YOUR MATERIAL

So yeah, here’s the poll: ^_^

 

AH! So the option for the “I heart pink triangle” won the vote, and it’s now the official T4D queer salute for the Sochi Olympics! Which is very cool!  A lot people suggested doing it with a downward pointing triangle instead, so here is the final updated version of “I heart PINK TRIANGLE”:
