We have all the details on A Wave Blue World's Kickstarter campaign for new anthology “Becoming Who We Are: Real Stories About Growing Up Trans,” featuring an Exclusive Hardcover!
BECOMING WHO WE ARE is a 144-page Middle Grade-appropriate comics anthology featuring the real-life stories of 9 members of the trans community as they share their very relatable experiences of growing up, overcoming challenges, and discovering who they really are.
Co-edited by Sammy Lisel and cartoonist Hazel Newlevant (No Ivy League, Comics for Choice), BECOMING WHO WE ARE is intended to show gender-diverse kids that they’re not alone, and give all readers a chance to relate to the stories of an amazing group of trans people!
The anthology is set to have a worldwide release in May of 2024 as a softcover. As part of our effort to pay the very talented artists of these stories for their immense amount of work, we've launched this preorder campaign. Kickstarter backers will get their digital and softcover books before the official release date. Perhaps the most excitingly, AWBW is offering a Hardcover Edition exclusively available through this Kickstarter campaign!
The 9 stars of “Becoming Who We Are” whose real-life stories are featured in the anthology include: Sam Long, Robbi Mecus, Brook Guinan, Robbie Ahmed, Robin Aguilar, Dr. Kate Stone, Rebekah Bruesehoff, Diamond Stylz, and Marli Washington.
The artists who draw these stories include: Cynthia Yuan Cheng, Naomi Rubin, Hazel Newlevant, Victor Martins, Sunmi, Ravi Teixeira, Higu Rose, Kameron White, and Sage Coffee.
The cover to “Becoming Who We Are” is by Hazel Newlevant.
The campaign ends on December 14, 2023. For more information, please visit the campaign page today!
