Exciting news! That comic I did for Fusion last year, “How I told My Grandma I’m Transgender,” has won the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association Award for Excellence in Transgender Coverage!
HOW. COOL. IS. THAT.
(Answer: it’s pretty darn cool.)
If you’d like to have a copy of this comic in print format, remember you can buy the minicomic version from my Gumroad store.
So, like, I’ve been in a few award-winning anthologies, but this is my first solo award for my comics work. So I am, as of now, officially an Award Winning Cartoonist™.
SPEAKING OF AWARD-WINNING ANTHOLOGIES. Ahem.
The Beyond Anthology, which has already won a Lambda Literary Award and been named to the Tiptree Honor List, is now nominated for an Ignatz Award for Outstanding Anthology or Collection.
So! Even more coolness.
I do indeed have plans to be at SPX with Northwest Press (table D2). So if you’re going to be there, come to the booth for some queer comics goodness, and vote Beyond Anthology for Outstanding Anthology or Collection!
Just a quick note to mention that QU33R won the 2014 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Anthology or Collection! Big congratulations to our editor Rob Kirby, the 33 creators featured in the book (including myself, of course :} ), and Zan Christensen & Northwest Press!
It’s very exciting to be part of another award-winning anthology (No Straight Lines won the 2013 Lambda Literary Award for Best Anthology). And if you haven’t checked out QU33R yet, well, what’re ya waitin’ for, an invitation? (You are cordially invited to check out QU33R.)
Politically InQueerect: Old Ghosts page 28 is up! I feel guilty about this page, but not guilty enough to have done it differently.
Read it here on Tapastic, or here on Studio NDR.
The archive of all pages posted to date is here.
In other news, QU33R is up for an Ignatz Award!
I have a 5-page story in there, the one about the gender-swapped Transformers.
I believe the final voting for the award is done at SPX, so if you’re going to be there this year and want to support queer comics, do consider giving us a vote.
