- Discussion questions:
- What did you learn from reading this article? What surprised you? What challenged your thinking?
- Parker Guidry argues that the only way to get beyond 'making a statement' by having a TGNC performer in a show is to make it a more common practice. How can you begin the conversation at home that normalizes this practice? How can you begin it in your workplace? Amongst your friends? Family?
- At the end of the article is a list of things to consider when asking a TGNC performer to work for your company. What can you add to this list? How can you implement these practices into your workplace, even if you don't work in theatre?
