Death Threat – Vivek Shraya + Ness Lee
Yn hydref 2017, dechreuodd yr awdur a’r cerddor Vivek Shraya dderbyn post casineb trawsffobig gan ddieithryn. Mae’r artist Ness Lee wedi dod â’r llythyrau hyn ac ymateb Shraya yn fyw yn Death Threat, llyfr comig sy’n weithred o wrthsefyll.
In the fall of 2017, the acclaimed writer and musician Vivek Shraya began receiving vivid and disturbing transphobic hate mail from a stranger. Celebrated artist Ness Lee brings these letters and Shraya’s responses to them to startling life in Death Threat, a comic book that, by its existence, becomes a compelling act of resistance. Using satire and surrealism, Death Threat is an unflinching portrayal of violent harassment from the perspective of both the perpetrator and the target, illustrating the dangers of online accessibility, and the ease with which vitriolic hatred can be spread digitally.
