This week we focus on Osh-Tisch, whose name translates to “Finds Them and Kills Them” in Crow. Osh-Tisch was a male-bodied person who lived as a woman, and was one of the last Crow Nation baté (Two Spirit spiritual leaders) – oh, and you can be sure, she earned her name.
She is also far from the only awesome lady in this story.
Oh, boy, I wish I could shove this into some brains until it sticks.
I need to shove this into my own brain until it sticks.
I was having a conversation with another comics-drawing trans lady friend of mine a few days ago and we kinda sorta brainstormed an anthology of comics by and about trans women. There would have to be some kind of crowd-funding, of course, and I would want to see everyone get a good page rate (trans women being chronically poor). Would there be any interest in this? And who would be good candidates for inclusion?
