Recommendation: Genderfailz

A reader recommends…


Alix is a transguy struggling against a limited and restrictive healthcare system. Genderfailz #1 is written about his struggle with depression while he waits to be assessed for hormone therapy. The tedious shuffle of bureaucracy is almost too much to bear, and when his appointment finally arrives, Alix discovers that the one gender specialist in Alberta may not agree with his choices. Genderfailz explores the area between and outside of male and female, and shows through first-hand experience just how limiting gender can be.
