Earlier this month, Dark Horse Comics tweeted about a Pride Month sale they were having, which led to former editor Jay Edidin taking to Twitter to call out the company's healthcare policy which didn't cover transgender-specific healthcare, specifically "anything related to gender dysphoria & transition." He claimed that the publisher was also able to skirt state laws by acting as a self-insured company and providing its own insurance.


Following nearly two weeks of public criticism, Dark Horse announced that it had amended its healthcare policy to cover transgender-specific healthcare.


Writer and editor Mariah McCourt was in the process of collecting signatures from supporters to put pressure on Dark Horse when the policy change was announced.



Following the announcement of the policy change Jay tweeted his takeaways from the situation.



Dark Horse's insurance policy change is set to take affect October 1.
