“In Betweens” is a minicomic that I adapted from Jordan Scruggs’ poem of the same name. Jordan’s poem explores the intricacies of nonbinary life and, I believe, speaks with generosity and spirit, to many of us who identify as nonbinary. The comic ultimately celebrates nonbinary/gender nonconforming existence and marks our place in the queer community. I’m so happy to have been able to work with Jordan on this project for TDOR 2016.
“As an Echoing Ida writer, I’m excited to be part of this project because it’s celebrating my truth. I often feel like my voice is not heard in general, similar to how I feel as a genderqueer/non-binary person in the transgender community. TDOR and Echoing Ida have given me the space to share my life and identity as a Black Genderqueer person through the medium that gives me the most peace: poetry.” ~Jordan Scruggs
