The Trans Literacy Project

See all of the released episodes here!

Through audience feedback, we discovered the trans character in The Birds & the Bees: Unabridged sparked questions, like “What does the ‘T’ in ‘LGBT’ even mean?” We wondered, how could we create opportunities for people to ask uncomfortable questions and begin a dialogue about trans content? How could we decrease misunderstandings, isolation, and conflicts about gender identity that arise in the home, work, and community? A video series!

The Trans Literacy Project is a free videos series created and produced by Honest Accomplice Theatre, written by Maybe Burke, Maggie Keenan-Bolger, and Rachel Sullivan with the HAT Ensemble, and filmed by Andrew Keenan-Bolger to provide communities with an accessible education about trans experiences, from the perspective of trans people.  Addressing topics such as pronoun usage, acceptable questions, and how to be an ally, the series is a valuable resource for trans people to both ease the burden of education, and create a space to explore issues facing the trans community.  HAT surveyed hundreds of people to find the topics most trans people wanted to cover, and learn what our allies wanted to hear about.

HAT has accompanying workshops for schools, organizations, and businesses.

If you have a question you’d like answered on the video series, or want to get involved with the making of this project, let us know!
