Recommendation: Skin Horse

Vicky recommends…

Skin Horse
A webcomic

It’s a webcomic about a black ops government project tasked with the capture, rehabilitation, and reintroduction to society of nonhuman sentients, with a title that’s a reference to the Velveteen Rabbit.

The main character is a heterosexual transvestite psychologist with an amazing fashion sense nicknamed “Tip.” Skin Horse is easily the best depiction of transvestitism in any form of literature, ever, and that’s not a claim I make lightly. It catalogs the trials and tribulations of being non-heteronormative in a heteronormative world perfectly, while still maintaining a feeling that Tip is accepted and loved by his coworkers.
