The Backstagers: A Transgender-Inclusive (And Young) High School Comic Series

The Backstagers written by: James Tynion IV, art by: Rian Sygh

When Jory transfers to an all-boys private high school, he's taken in by the only ones who don't treat him like a new kid, the lowly stage crew known as the Backstagers. Not only does he gain great, lifetime friends, Jory is also introduced to an entire magical world that lives beyond the curtain. With the unpredictable twists and turns of the underground world, the Backstagers venture into the unknown, determined to put together the best play their high school has ever seen.
Midway through this comic, one of the characters is revealed to be a transgender boy. Thanks to Brigid Alverson's and their Just Another Day in an LGBTQ Comic article in School Library Journal for the heads-up on this one.
