Wasn't sure if this counted as a promotion thread or not, so mods feel free to move it if needed, but given that today is Trans Day of Visibility, I thought it might be a good time to help our Trans Creators feel, well visible!
So! If you are a trans creator (or nonbinary, intersex, etc) then feel free to post your work here and talk a bit about what it means to you! I'd love to hear about your personal journey and how your work has effected or been affected by it!
if you are not trans, but you have someone you want to hype up, throw in their work too (with their permission, we're not outing people), and spread the support around! I would love for everyone that comes to this thread to check out at least one or two relevant works to help spread awareness of Trans/Nonbinary issues, especially given everything that's going on in the world.
To get things started I'll talk a bit about Brooders. This story is a specifically Trans Story that I wrote while I first started questions my own gender. I'm still putting in a lot of work with Therapy but Brooders centers around a young man named Werndel who is trying to discover himself through the art of trying to look dark and mysterious in the dim corners of taverns. like most brooders he isn't very good at it, but with the help of a few friends he finds a different kind of path, and discovers who she really is, taking on the name Rose. This story meant a lot to me, as did its reception, and I actually was tearing up a bit when writing her discovery. It helped to figure out who I was, and I hope that anyone who reads it finds hope in it as well.
No image because I'm linking directly to Brooder's first episode.
As a final aside, because I am also a witch, I wanted to post up this sigil I made of Divine Self-Alchemy. I hope any along the trans spectrum who see this sigil find comfort in it, and am happy to allow you to alter it for your own needs.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's work.
