Why?

This story is about radical self acceptance— discovering a new part about yourself that you may not like and working to understand and accept it. I initially drew the story from my own experience as a trans man, and the denial and uncertainty I felt when I first realized I was different.

My hope is that this story is one that can be universally understood. We all have had things we’ve discovered about ourselves that seemed too ugly and vulnerable to love, but had to learn to appreciate and become stronger for it.

Even if things feel out of control, it is never too late to decide to love yourself.
