Written and Illustrated by Sophie La Belle
Sophie is a Canadian author, cartoonist, and public speaker. She is active in the transgender rights movement and speaks on the subjects of trans history and transfeminism. Assigned Male is her long running comic detailing her experiances.It features the character of 12-year-old Stephie, a trans girl discovering and embracing her gender. While working with transgender children, she “noticed how negative everything we tell them about their own body is, so I wanted to create a character that could respond to all those horrible things trans kids hear all the time.” She has made educational guides to go with the comics, to promote safer spaces for trans youth.
With several hundred comics under her belt Assigned Male is sure to keep you busy for a good while!
