    Gender Inclusivity in the Entertainment Industry

    With topics of gender identity entering mainstream consciousness in new ways, many individuals and organizations are asking what they can do to be more inclusive. We’ll discuss strategies for working with trans and non-binary colleagues and artists, handling theatre-specific needs like audience spaces and dressing rooms, and what to think about when creating art that involves gender. Whatever your starting point, you’ll take away concrete steps to aid in your journey of gender inclusivity.
    This class and discussion will be presented by  Josephine Kearns, Gender Consultant, Dramaturg, & Theatre Creative on Thursday, May 16  via Zoom. The presentation will begin at 1:00 pm and last approximately 90 minutes.
