This is a simple text based game where you play as a young trans person trying to buy some underwear. I made it with the intention of showing cis people what it’s like to be trans. You can play as a trans girl, trans boy, or a nonbinary person. It’s short, so you can play it multiple times for different paths. There are several paths, some better, some worse; if you’re easily triggered by dysphoria or transphobia, you may want to avoid this game. Some paths are safer than others, depending on how well you pass (surprise, surprise). TW for homophobic/transphobic slurs, transphobia/transmisogyny, slurs, misgendering, and possible violence.
I did this just to see how relatable it was, and holy shit it was like someone put me back in the spots i was in only a year ago. My heart is racing shit.
ow… my everything hurts…
Hey all my cis followers: this is instructive. Go play it.
Rainbow Railroad is the charity my brother Justin is working for, and they need help ASAP. RR works with government agencies in Canada, to help at-risk members of the LGBTQ community in other countries. They’ve funded everything from safe-houses in LGBTQ friendly nations, to actually financing individual escape plans (this included airfare, and assistance in filing refugee status once in Canada). In more than one case, they secured new identities for refugees, to enable them to hide more effectively.
RR is currently working to get a Nigerian healthcare worker to Canada, and needs an additional 2 grand to do so. This case is pretty near and dear to my brother’s heart, so if you have a couple extra bucks you could throw at it, I’d appreciate it. Paypal linkage on the FB page.
