people feel entitled to tell trans girls that they look like other women usually biological women

underlying these comments is a supposition that transfeminine ontology is imitation: a burlesque of “authentic” biological femininity

"Self-Portrait", oil on board, 20"x16"

I’m a transgender artist. This piece is titled “Self-Portrait” because both figures are me. The figures on the left is me before my transition and the figure on the right is me about 5 months into my transition.

CASTING CALL: POC GENDERQUEER / NON-BINARY FEMME

This is a casting call for a paid role. Check below the “Read More” line for the actual casting call. Please help us spread the word!

Watching our own pilot, something became apparent. While our show has POC actors, all were of lighter complexion, and we hadn’t created space for actors with darker skin tones. That meant we weren’t creating a show that our whole audience could see themselves in. That didn’t sit right.

Addie is a new role that we’ve added to the show. They’re a genderqueer POC (of darker complexion). At the start of the show, Addie and Su work together. Su moves on, but their lives intersect every once in a while.

Addie has a scene early on where they’re still presenting as a man, but in subsequent scenes are living out as a genderqueer / non-binary femme. Their role in the first season is limited, but their story stretches into future seasons.

Our casting call is below the “Read More” line. Please help us spread the word! This is an important opportunity for QTPOC actors!
