Transgender comics creators are telling their own stories like never before. The groundbreaking new anthology We're Still Here features 50 trans cartoonists sharing their personal experiences as only they can. Meanwhile trans characters are finding their way into prominent roles in superhero, sci-fi, and fantasy comics that combine derring-do with real-life struggles of gender and acceptance. What do comics both indie and mainstream have in store for the transgender community in a politically fraught climate? How can trans comics artists best serve their creative and financial interests in an industry that has yet to fully embrace them? Prism Comics and moderator Tara Madison Avery (Prism Comics board member, Stacked Deck Press) along with panelists Knave Murdok (TransCat), Ajuan Mance (Gender Studies), Veronica Casson (Salt & Fog), Dylan Edwards (Transposes), Sonya Saturday (Load World Comics), and Erin Nations (Gumballs) discuss these and other topics.
