LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — UPDATE Oct. 3, 2016: Lindsay Walker takes her life. From the artists publication Chronicle Chamber:
“ChronicleChamber has confirmed with a family friend that, after a difficult period in her personal life, Lindsay tragically ended her own life on 27th September. . . .
Lindsay is survived by her partner Kim and three children Ariel, Heloise and Evelyn.“
If new information develops, I will update this article.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: First it was musician Laura Jane Grace in the Spring, followed by film director Lana Wachowski’s debut this Summer. Now Australia’s Lindsay Walker, an artist who has previously drawn a number of covers for The Phantom comic book series, has recently made her transition to female official.
While Walker may not be as famous as Grace and Wachowski, the comic book phenomena is nothing to sneeze at. Like her trans peers elsewhere in the art world, Walker becomes a role model for trans people following comic books in general and The Phantom in particular. In addition, the knowledge of a trans artist in the business helps “normalizes” the presence of trans people.
Thumbs up to Lindsay Walker, another trans role model.
For those following The Phantom, this interview with Walker may be of interest to you: Wear It Purple – An Interview With Artist Lindsay Walker » ChronicleChamber.
