Episode 21: Transgender Actor Panel

The burgeoning discussion about transgender inclusion in Chicago Theatre is encouraging.  It’s great to see large institutions like Steppenwolf and The Goodman Theatre beginning to have important conversations about trans representation on their stages.  But for the people living this struggle, those conversations can a little, well … basic.  

In this episode, Avi Roque (they/them) guest hosts a conversation with three other transgender actors: Charlie Baker (he/him), Jojo Brown (she/her) and Theo Germaine (they/them) about what it’s really like to be a transgender actor in Chicago.

Special thanks to Avi for all of their work coordinating and hosting this special episode.
