Check Out This Week’s Cartoons: Nov. 17, 2016

Kylie Wu tackles the chaser's fairytale, Emeric L. Kennard honors Transgender Day of Remembrance, and more.

Emeric Kennard, a transgender man, is a San Francisco-based visual artist. He created this original piece for SF Weekly in honor of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, an Oakland-based transgender icon who has been fighting for LGBT people since the 1950s, and Jazzie Collins, a transgender woman who was a fixture in San Francisco community activism until her death in 2013.

The SoCal-based artist was featured in last year’s Trans 100 — a list of notable people “working on trans issues in the United States and having a positive impact” — as well as in Elite Daily‘s list of 10 most influential trans millennials, an honor that she shared with Laverne Cox and Janet Mock.
