Exploding Gender: Creating Space for Gender Diverse Theatre (Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Special Series)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Transgender and Non-Binary artists are here—and we’re ready to work!  As theaters pivot towards topics of gender-inclusivity, many are asking what they can actually do—beyond retweeting Laverne Cox quotes on the company account—to make theatrical spaces truly more inclusive.  It may seem like a big task, but we promise you, it’s easier than you think to begin making the theatre sector more welcoming for your Trans siblings.  From running rehearsals, to marketing, to facilities—join StageSource’s Gender Explosion Initiative, to discuss the current status quo for gender inclusion in the arts, and actions you can take right now to move it forward.  Have a question that’s been bugging you, but you’re nervous to ask in person?
