“T” By -SAM-
‘T’ is a satirical transgender cartoon series and the Transgender Zone Comedy Page.
Either in Ink art or using characters it satirises the transgender community and equally the way society deals with transgender issues.
Unlike many cartoons it is developed by a transgender person and shown on Transgender Zone. So although it may initially be having a dig at the community, behind every cartoon there is a message. It might be you enjoy this or you may think it is subversive. However, sometimes people are saying things that are never spoken out loud. ‘T’ helps address this.

This Cartoon explained as some people didn’t get it 🙂 – The Super Hero has stolen all the dilators in the world to build his Fortress at the North Pole – get it? Ever since I saw my first dilator I have had this joke in my head, of course the Superman ‘S’ logo and even the word is trademarked and fiercely guarded by its creators in artwork, so I have done my best to parody those two and the Icy ‘Fortress of Solitude’. – but it still works ;).
‘The Gender Dysphoria Guidelines’ have just been published – see our blog for more.
A lot of this about lately. Jared Leto’s Oscar is just one example of this. Non-transpeople taking potential opportunities for themselves when with just a little effort on the part of casting directors can and should deliver results like ‘Orange is the New Black‘ with Laverne Cox. Sadly the UK media is stuck in a transphobic time-warp and they wonder why so many of their viewers are leaving them for online content?
In 1978 Julia Grant visited the Gender Clinic in London. You can watch our interview with her here.

The amazing thing is I have not altered the dialogue in any way this is just how things were in the 70s so think yourselves lucky with the team at CX today!

This is having a dig at all those that use ‘Trans-Currency’ to make money, be they cisgender actors, drag artists, or stand-up comedians. When transgender people should be being cast! You can find out more about ‘Transgender-Currency here! http://blog.transgenderzone.com/?p=1043
Maybe they could add this little money spinner to their shop?
This is part of the problem with LGB/T As it has very little relationship to the core problems and selling T-shirts here will not solve it. Only £15.00! I would keep that £15 quid in your pocket and buy your non-transmates a drink it will do more for our community in the long run! It is just as likely to be worn as the others in public try it when you are alone and see how it goes? (No don’t do that). And it lumps straight transgender people in with GLB. Creating a link that really should be being dismantled.
If you are interested in the ‘Stonewall way’ and want to spend £15 for a kick me sticker, click here to find out what Stonewall will be doing in your name. Look for the part that asks, “what is in this for them?..”
