I write and speak a lot about being trans, being a trans improviser, and how both have a wider effect on my world view. I’m very happy to be a representative of the trans community, but I’m also aware that for a lot of people I’m the only one they know personally. One personal connection can provide a lot of insight into an experience, but not the whole experience of a group of people. I decided to start a series of interviews with other improvisers who are trans and/or non-binary so that we can all benefit from a wider range of perspectives.
This is an ongoing project, so if you’re a trans/non-binary (or intersex/gender-fluid/otherwise differently gendered) improviser, do get in touch!
