For transgender and non-binary actors, the casting process is full of potential land mines. And many casting directors continue to make the same mistakes. From writing character descriptions, to deciding who to call in, to navigating pronouns, to setting up the room – not to mention dance calls and casting of trans roles – there is much to consider. Gender Consultant Josephine Kearns will guide casting directors through ensuring your actors feel welcome, while also getting you the information you need and staying within legal boundaries.
