Subject:TGDOR Webcomics Project 2009
Time:03:47 am
Howdy, everyone.

I'm gearing up to do this year's Transgender Day of Remembrance Webcomics Project and am looking for transgendered artists and writers who'd like to participate.

For those of you who don't know about the project, in a nutshell, we're a group of webcomic artists and authors who put together a remembrance strip for late
November. There is always a running theme, but the themes are voluntary (especially if your comic has no TG characters). If you'd like some examples of the
earlier entries, you can see previous projects for yourself at the Webcomics DOR site at http://www.dolari.net/dor.

All we ask is that you link to the other comics running images as well, and keep the images up for your normal comic-length. We're aiming at having these
displayed on the week of the 20th. After the comics are done, I'd love your permission to keep them on my Day of Remembrance site, at http://www.dolari.net/dor

This year's theme is "[Something Mundne] shouldn't end in a death." Such as "Falling in Love shouldn't end in death" or "Taking out the trash shouldn't end in
death" (which actually happened). The one I'll be doing is "Going to the Store Shouldn't End in Death." This theme will prolly be more narrative than before,
and multipage entries will be accepted.

Again, the themes are voluntary, and if you have an idea you'd like to pursue, or a better idea for a theme that you'd like to present, please do.

Please let me know if you'd like to participate this year by letting me know via EMail (jenn@dolari.net). IF you know someone who may be interested, but isn't on this list, by all
means, forward it along (especially as real life has kept me from researching the newer comics out there).

Again, sorry for the late status report (life has been...interesting). Look forward to hearing from y'all soon.

Transgender Remembrance Shabbat
Friday, November 21, 2008, 7:30 pm
290 Dolores Street (corner of 16th Street)
San Francisco, CA 94103
http://www.shaarzahav.org/

Since 1999, November 20th has been set aside in cities across the country as Transgender Day of Remembrance. This day memorialises those who have been killed due to anti-Transgender hatred. High rates of murder and other violence continues to be one of the most critical issues facing our Transgender communities; and more and more people, Trans and non-Trans, are raising their voices in commemoration and protest.

At Congregation Sha'ar Zahav, we have designated November 21st as Transgender Remembrance Shabbat. At Friday night services we will remember all who have suffered from anti-Transgender violence, with special liturgy, music, sermon, and the reading of names. As the Congregation Sha'ar Zahav community participates in the holy act of remembering, we continue to educate ourselves and to commit to further action on this critical community issue.

More information about the Day of Remembrance can be found at http://www.transgenderdor.org/


Our Mission: At Congregation Sha'ar Zahav, we are committed to sustaining a safe environment to nurture and express our diverse spiritual, sexual, educational and ethical values. Our rabbi, lay-leaders and members join together to bring meaning to Torah and Jewish observance. We are committed to creative prayer, study, mitzvot and tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Friends reject police's take on transgender woman's death

A week after Aimee Wilcoxson was found dead in her north Aurora home, her friends say they still have questions about the transgender woman’s death.

“None of it makes sense to us,” said Imani Latif, executive director of It Takes A Village, the nonprofit organization where Wilcoxson worked.

More than 30 friends of Wilcoxson gathered Wednesday night near It Takes a Village at East Colfax Avenue and Lima Street to remember the woman who they say loved to laugh, loved Madonna and who advocated for other transgender women who, like her, had been diagnosed with HIV.

Subject:TDoR 2008
Time:04:24 pm
Hi, I'm Torrin and I have a few questions.

I'm involved with a LGBT youth center in Indiana that has recently gone through an administration change. There's a lot of good, positive action taking place...But TDoR is getting lost in the shuffle. I'm as active as I can be with a full time job and, you know, without actuall moving into the center, but, I apparently fail at finding information.

I can't find out where an official TDoR event is being held for Indianapolis this year. I remember going to one in the past, and I've asked all the questions I can to figure out where it was and if it still exists, but, the new administration isn't aware of TDoR. So, I was wondering: does anyone know where an official TDoR event is being held for Indianapolis this year?

If not, I want to plan and hold an event specifically for the center. The youth who go to the center are between 12 and 20, but currently the youngest youth are in the 14-15 year range. Most of them are not gender queer, but are LGB. They're good people who genuinely have little to no exposure to transgender/ transsexual individuals.

I want to do TDoR properly, but, should I hold an event before TDoR to educate them about why TDoR is held? Or is it appropriate to have an informational portion to TDoR itself? I believe the program director will give me enough rope to hang myself with on this, since he didn't know what TDoR was before I asked what the center was doing for the event. Any information will be amazingly helpful!

After the comics are done, I'd love your permission to keep them on my Day of Remembrance site, at http://www.dolari.net/dor

This year's theme is a little less dark than last year's. The theme this year is to illustrate a word or a feeling that the Day of Remembrance makes you feel. This could be a poem, a scene, a feeling, anything that the DOR makes you feel. Good, bad or otherwise.

In particular my plan this year is to illustrate "Hope." An artist drawing with her back to a tree sitting next to a warmly lit graveyard, remembering a time when trans murders were ignored and underinvestigated and how it's all changed (which is hasn't, but that's where hope comes in). If you have a different feeling, draw it. If you'd like to do Hope, too, please do.

Again, the themes are voluntary, and if you have an idea you'd like to pursue, or a better idea for a theme that you'd like to present, please do.

Please let me know if you'd like to participate this year by letting me know via EMail. IF you know someone who may be interested, but isn't on this list, by all means, forward it along (especially as real life has kept me from researching the newer comics out there).

Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics 2008 in Comic Shops Now!

posted May 29th, 2008

[Print-ready Version]

Prism Comics, which promotes LBGT comics and creators, is proud to announce the publication of Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics 2008, edited by Jonathan Riggs and featuring a cover by acclaimed artist Jackademus. This year’s Guide is bigger and better than ever, bumping up the original LGBT comics pages from 30 to 100, along with over 20 features, interviews and more. In stores now!

"The Prism Guide is bigger than ever in every way - we have more content, more comics, and a new, larger format," says editor Jonathan Riggs. "We're so proud to pick up where we left off with last year's fantastic guide and - we hope - outdo ourselves in promoting the amazing talent of Prism Comics!"

This year’s Prism Guide features a "Prism High" yearbook theme, recounting everything LGBT in this year’s comics. Highlights include a report card on LGBT portrayals in everything from JSA to the X-Men books and beyond; interviews with famous alumni such as Chuck Kim, writer for TV’s Heroes, and Darren Davis, the founder of Bluewater Productions; an erotic comics roundtable discussion; a celebration of the Transgender Day Of Remembrance by Jenn Dolari; an exploration of the role of religion in LGBT comics; a tribute to the 25th birthday of Jeff Krell’s Jayson; and an intro by Erica Friedman to Yuri Manga (lesbian manga). Original comics include work from LGBT comics giants such as Paige Braddock (Jane's World), Leanne Franson (liliane bi-dyke), Tim Fish (Cavalcade Of Boys), Allan Neuwirth and Glen Hanson (Chelsea Boys), Patrick Fillion (Deimos), Justin Hall (Prism grant winner for Glamazonia), Tommy Roddy (Prism grant winner for Pride High), Chris Companik (HIV + Me), and many more.

Editor Jonathan Riggs was interviewed about the new Guide by Mr. Media (Bob Andelman). You can download the interview as an MP3 file.

Along with convention appearances, Prism publishes an annual guide to LGBT comics, and maintains a website with LGBT creator listings and features on all that’s queer in comics.
