Transgender Comics Artist Bravely Chronicles Her Transition Process

The complexities of transitioning and gender dysphoria can be hard to put into words. But art can fill in the gaps — and one artist is breaking the silence with her simple comics. 28-years-old Julie Kaye who defines herself as a "Trans lady makin' comics" is already famous from her web comic 'Up And Out', but last year a big change came to her life - she became a transgender woman.
The black-and-white web comics documents her own transition, getting to the core of deeply personal experiences within the trans community.
