When Porter's best friend Ella changes her name, Porter freaks out, worried that she might become a different person entirely.
This is a story where one dinosaur - in this case, the one Formerly Known as Ella - comes out as nonbinary to their friend, Porter Protoceratops. Unfortunately, Porter, like many friends and family of transgender individuals, doesn't immediately understand and accept his friend. He tries for some time to "reason" his friend out of their new name and pronouns, but that isn't going to happen. Follow Porter and the newly-named Echo on their journey to acceptance and a much stronger friendship!
About the author
Phoenix Baldwin (born January 12, 1998) is the author of online comics and books under the "DinoToons" title, starting with Here Comes the Moon. He currently resides in Orange County, California. Phoenix attended two schools to pursue study of art, but ultimately dropped them for individual study with different professors. DinoToons was in the works when leaving the first school, where Phoenix dreamed of combining one of his passions - dinosaurs - with the LGBT inclusive themes that DinoToons bears today. A transgender man himself, Phoenix wants to see more children's media that portrays people like him and made DinoToons to help take steps in that direction.
