Super Late Bloomer: My Early Days in Transition: 12/28/21

Super Late Bloomer: My Early Days in Transition

Super Late Bloomer: My Early Days in Transition by Julia Kaye began as a webcomic / diary as part of her Up and Out comic. In it she chronicles the first year or so of her transition.

The comic is a three panel deal, for the most part. It's rather like reading a Garfield comic except that instead of Garfield, the other character is Julia's body dysphoria.

Julia began her process in her mid to late twenties. There's a lot of raw emotions involved. There's a body that has settled into a form that's contrary to how she feels inside.

A lot of what she recounts in these panels rings true from my experience listening to trans friends and relatives. Frankly I think some of this book might hit too close to home for some readers.

There's a second book which released in 2021: My Life in Transition

Five stars
