2013 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Annie plans to work on a graphic novel, Body Language, which explores her experiences with trans identity and healing from abuse. She will read a section of the story at the Philly Feminist Zinefest’s reading at Wooden Shoe Books. Annie hopes that other trans people and survivors of sexual abuse, upon hearing this story, feel mirrored in their struggle for a voice and feel validated in their relationships with their bodies, boundaries, and histories. She hopes her audience will be encouraged to share their stories after hearing her own.
