“Gender euphoria” is the overwhelming feeling of joy a gender-non-conforming person feels when their gender is explored, validated, and celebrated. From being called the right name, to photoshoots with friends, to performing as a different gender in a play; gender euphoria is something that can result from an infinite number of experiences.
When I Was Me is a 96 page collection of autobiographical comics about the joyful and euphoric experiences of being transgender, featuring stories from trans people with a wide range of gender identities, ages, and backgrounds! This is the first comic anthology from Quindrie Press, edited by Eve Greenwood and Alex Assan. 100% of the team working on When I Was Me fits under the trans umbrella, from pre-press to artists. With 11 interior illustrations and over 60 comics, this book is a wonderful reminder that the trans experience is full of beauty and happiness.
I contributed to a comic script to the book, and also wrote a newly commissioned poem which frames the whole project, opening each chapter and closing the book.
Order at Quindrie Press. 50% of all sales of When I Was Me is donated to organisations that support young trans people in the UK.
