2014 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Annie is a comic book creator who seeks to affirm the lives and experiences of trans women and survivors. Through her fictional and memoir-based comics, she aims to agitate, engage, and encourage inquiry.  Annie works to inspire personal and artistic confidence by breaking down feelings of isolation within her community. In her art, Annie explores themes of trans women’s identity, long-term effects of sexual abuse and disability stemming from mental illness. She was a recipient of the Xeric Grant for Comic Book Self-Publishing and her work has been featured in several anthologies, comic conventions, galleries, and events. Annie also tours her work in an ongoing transnational series of readings, which include guest readers whose work examines racism, abuse, and marginalization in beautiful and striking ways. Annie creates space and prioritizes artists and readers who identify as trans female, disabled, queer, and/or people of color.
