10+ Emotional Comics Perfectly Capture The Struggles Of Gender Transition

You might already be familiar with Julia Kaye by her web-comic ‘Up and Out’.

She is a 28 year old cartoonist and is living in Los Angeles. However, last year she became a transgender woman. This must have been a big step for her. As, she is still dealing with her different feelings.

Julia also started drawing comics which shows the everyday life of a transgender woman. She tries to show the transition while also sprinkling some insecurity and triumph in there. It has however, helped her transition a lot but not without the help of her friends and family.

”It got me to set aside time at the end of my day to reflect on how I was feeling. And because I was making the comics for myself, I allowed myself to be more honest than I might have been otherwise.” Julie admitted. She eventually started sharing the comics online, realizing that they might help other trans people or one’s living with gender dysphoria.
