We’ve had a couple posts on The Hub that talk about transgender fiction, and there’s a list of transgender titles on the YALSA wiki. Cris Beam’s I Am J is even on the list of nominees for the 2011 Teens’ Top Ten (which you can vote for between August 22 and September 16, hint hint). But what I haven’t seen mentioned as much are manga titles with transgender, genderqueer, or transvestite characters. Which is ironic, because sometimes it’s harder for me to think of a manga series that doesn’t have at least one guy dressing as a girl, or vice versa. So I thought I’d do a short list of three of the best manga I know with characters whose gender identities are far from fixed.
