Trans Girl Next Door is an autobiographical webcomic by Kylie Summer Wu, documenting her transition as a transgender woman. Wu started her webcomic shortly after starting her transition in in order to express and process her feelings. Trans Girl Next Door covers Wu's transition, her love life, and the more mundane parts of her life. Wu was listed in The Trans in for her webcomic. Trans Girl Next Door is a slice-of-life series of episodic comic strips documenting Wu's life as a young transgender California surfer girl. Besides documenting Wu's gender transition, the webcomic also covers her love life as well as more mundane aspects of life. Though the webcomic deals with topics such as body dysmorphia , anti-transgender bills , discrimination , and body issues, it does so via humor. Kylie Wu grew up in China and moved to the Washington D. Here, she went to CalArts and to study Character Animation. Wu stated that the various short comedy webcomics available to her inspired her to create her own, and that her undiagnosed ADHD encourages her to keep her own comic strips short.
When Kylie Wu was growing up, her parents thought that they were raising a little boy, and when she looked at herself in the mirror, that's what she saw, too. One experience stands out in Wu's memory, from when she was in the 5th or 6th grade -- long before she learned the word "transgender. Now all grown up and living in West Los Angeles, California, Wu prefers surfing to basketball but spends much of her free time drawing new installments of "Trans Girl Next Door," a popular Web-only comic series showcasing her day-to-day life as a smart, funny year-old transitioning to the person she's longed to be since those days on the playground. Wu isn't the only trans woman drawing comics -- not by a long shot -- but she has become the most prominent one in a growing cadre of young illustrators depicting and celebrating the real lives of transgender people. In a series of interviews I did with people who create, publish and curate comics featuring lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer LGBTQ people, many of them described how important it is for young folks struggling with their gender or sexual identity to be able to see others undergoing similar struggles, both in comics and in other media. It's worth noting that even the mainstream outlets are catching on. Emeric Kennard, a year-old aspiring graphic novelist, remembers the frustration and longing he once felt as he was growing up in the small city of West Linn, Oregon. No matter how widely he searched or how many comics he read, he never seemed to find any stories about the lives and experiences of other trans men. It's also crucial that LGBTQ folk tell their own stories, she insists, as comic superstar Alison Bechdel has done in her work depicting lesbian life, most notably in "Fun Home," the graphic memoir that has become a perennial bestseller and been adapted into a Broadway show that won the Tony Award for best musical in June.
I remember one time I did just that with a group of friends and someone saying, "Oh you have it so rough.
