I'mma bet you learn a lot from today's guest on the podcast... Ann Thomas is the founder of Transgender Talent 👉 providing talent management services to transgender & non-binary actors. 🎬
And let me tell you... Ann is A LOT of fun and isn't afraid to tell it like it is!
She talks through the unique challenges trans & non-binary actors can face on set; in audition rooms; and in closed-door meetings.
Ann is a fierce advocate for actors ( ← just my kinda human!): She educates showbizniz professionals on how to work effectively & respectfully with her clients while always striving to create more safe & supportive opportunities for trans & non-binary performers. 🏳️⚧️
Ann brings her whole enchilada manager expertise to this episode – so if you want to know how to be a better client to your reps (or just want new reps!) she's got some great advice to get you started (i.e., what your reel should – and should not! – include).
PS: Ann's at the forefront of making change in this industry: She's behind the push for Actors Access to change actors' profiles so that actors can now define their identity more clearly and define what roles they will play.
