You know how important it is to us here at Broken Frontier to give space and time to comics work from the trans community. Becoming Who We Are: Real Stories About Growing Up Trans is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter but it could do with an extra boost in its last few days. This all-ages collection of stories about the trans experience boasts a line-up of entirely trans and non-binary creators. It comes from the direction of A Wave Blue World who have been putting out some fine LGBTQ+ anthologies of late, including The Color of Always reviewed here at Broken Frontier this year.

We have made a point of building up a resource list of trans and non-binary stories at Broken Frontier over the last few years. What gives Becoming Who We Are an extra level of importance, though, is that it’s aimed very much with a younger audience in mind.

Here’s the catalogue information:
Becoming who you are is a journey, and all journeys start somewhere.
In a collection of stories from across the spectrum of real-life experience, nine members of the trans community share their inspirational childhood stories. These are tales of questioning, affirming, transitioning, and growing up; courageous, gripping accounts from musicians, actors, teachers, scientists, forest rangers, and activists of how they overcame their unique challenges to become who they truly are.
Featuring work by HAZEL NEWLEVANT, LILAH STURGES, CYNTHIA YUAN CHENG, KAMERON WHITE, SUNMI, and many more!
