- LGBTQIA Resources – If you are looking for the short-lived LGBTQIA resources page, it has moved offsite. I decided rather than maintaining such a repository here, it would work much better if it had it’s own site and web address. I hope you all find it helpful!
TG Related Resources
- Bodyswap Fiction – The home of tg fiction writer and captioner M Wills. Mostly he posts captions on his site, but he does have a number of stories available on Amazon and Smashwords.
- Bigcloset Topshelf – Certainly not the oldest tg site, but it is one of the largest. It has a more modern interface and a very active community. The best part? You can actually find my stories there!
- Fictionmania – A very simple website with a very simple interface that is very much a product of the world wide web’s early days. It does, however, offer the most extensive archive of tg stories on the web. My stories can also be found there.
- Scribblehub – Not a TG website per se, but rather an web fiction site which is very friendly to trans folk. Click here to see my profile at Scribblehub
- Twisted TG Files – A blogspot site which is the home of the likes of DocVS, Tobyredone, sammig82, and, one of my personal favorite tg writers, Zapper.
Reference and Catalog Sites
- Farhad’s TG – A website dedicated mostly to listing anime and manga that have gender transformations in them. As near as I can tell it hasn’t been updated in many years.
- Metamorphose – An archive site that holds a special place in my heart as it is the site from which I discovered the tg community. It has an extensive database of transformation related material including age, animal, female, furry, gender, inanimate, male, mythical, size and were.
- TGComics links page – one of the most extensive lists of TG related content I’ve ever seen and it’s now actively maintained by yours truly.
- Transgender Graphics and Fiction Archive – A website that is exactly as the name would infer, an archive of tg graphics and fiction.
- World of TG – A site that links to tg across various media including comics, webcomics, captions, movies and youtube channels.
Comics, Art and Other Media
- El Goonish Shive – In all honestly, probably the weirdest named webcomic of all time, but one which I’ve followed for many years. It’s had quite a few tg transformations over the years, but the artist and creator also throws in furry and shrinking transformations for good measure.
- Exiern – A tg comic that has a large cult following, it initially began with a barbarian warrior transformed into a woman during his quest to rescue a princess captured by an evil sorcerer, but has included quite a few transformations over the years and has expanded the story to many different characters. Well worth the read.
- Lady Valiant – A newer wecomic that involves a body swap between a teenage boy and the titular character.
- Misfile – Another tg webcomic where the main character is transformed into a woman, this time as a result of a heavenly clerical error. It has a heavy focus on street-racing and, in my opinion, really gets bogged down by a meandering plot. It has it’s moments however and at times can be quite fun.
- TGComics – A website dedicated primarily to transgendered transformation and crossdressing comics from many different content creators, but also hosts videos, illustrated stories, and transformation sequences.
- Wotch, the – Probably the longest running tg webcomic out there. It revolves around a high school girl who received the powers of ‘the Wotch’ and her adventures with her two male friends, transformations ensue, many of them of a tg nature.
Resources for Writers
- LibreOffice – A free and opensource alternative to MS Word that has the features most anyone would need if they are looking for a standard word processor. It can read and save to docx and doc format, but doesn’t load them as well as it’s own native format.
- Liquid Story Binder – A word processor geared towards writers, that has the ability to break stories down into chunks. It’s designed with a much more customizable user interface than any of the other options I’ve researched, but, despite this, I was never particularly enamored with it. It’s a solid bit of software, but just not one that ever appealed to me. Like Scrivener it comes with a price-tag, but unlike the application it is exclusive to Windows devices. Unfortunately, development appears to be dead as it hasn’t been updated since 2011.
- Manuskript – An open-source application for writers with a similar feature set to Scrivener. It’s still in the early development stages, and as such is a bit rough a round the edges but shows a lot of potential.
- Novlr – A subscription-based writing software that also allows a writer to break his or her story into smaller chunks and arrange them as desired. I was initially drawn in by it’s promise of compatibility across devices, but was put off by the monthly subscription costs and it’s lack of features. It is a very simple and straight-forward web app that may appeal to those intimidated by the likes of Scrivener or Liquid Story Binder or those who feel other choices are too bloated.
- Scapple – Developed by the same company as Scrivener, Scapple is a helpful and easy-to-use tool that allows you to quickly type ideas up and connecting them in a matter similar to a mind-mapping tool.
- Scrivener – The software I use throughout most of the writing process. It has a bit of a learning curve for some folks, but the things it allows you to do are well worth the effort. I was initially attracted to it for it’s ability to break a story into various-sized chunks and effortlessly rearrange it as I saw fit, but there are so many things it can do that it has actually replaced many of the tools I used in the past. Unfortunately, there is one big downside to writers on a budget, it’ll cost you $19.99, $40 or $45 (USD) depending on whether you use the iOS, Windows or Mac OS version. The Mac version is the most feature rich as it has been in development the longest, but the Windows version will eventually reach parity. The iOS version is a much simpler version intended for mobile devices and, to my knowledge, will never have all the features of the Mac or Windows variants.
- Ulysses – Writing software with some similarities to Scrivener, but one with a slightly different focus. I know very little about this one, but its users seem quite loyal. It is exclusive to Mac OS and iOS and has recently switched to a subscription-based pay model.
- yWriter – Free software, developed by author Simon Haynes, that offers similar functionality to Scrivener, in that it allows you to break up your story into smaller chunks, but is not as feature rich as it’s counterpart.
- Behind the Name – An extensive database of given names and their meanings. It lists monikers from all over the world.
- Behind the Name: Surnames – As one might infer from the name, this site is a sub-site of Behind the Name with a focus on Surnames rather than given names.
- Encyclopedia Mythica – A comprehensive encyclopedia of mythology and folklore, just as the name would suggest.
- English to Old Norse dictionary – One of the resources I used for the Ragnarok Rising stories when developing the various languages and terms.
- Medieval Names Archive – Recommended to me by Ellie Dauber, this site is dedicated exclusively to medieval names. It does not have the advanced search functions of Behind the Name, but has the most extensive list of Medieval names I’ve ever seen.
- Theoi – A site that explores Greek mythology and a great reference for anyone looking to write about or are just curious about it.
- Writing Diversity – A great guide on how to best include LGBTQIA+ characters in your writing.
