Then I have in all my educational, frmenars andforums. Please welcome Mr Scotts cop field, Ey, everybody! Thank you Alexander.That's such a I'm so honored by Your Entra. Thank you IM honored! We werejust talking about. I can't believe it's been so many years since we'veknown each other and the first time I was introduced.You was we no. What six or seven years ago, at this point yeah it was your bigpress, push for you being on the bold in a beautiful which, of course, youknow making TV history so we're just going to get to it and,like I said I just love that you you just don't put on airs it's like who'sgot time for that, so it's going to get right into it. I just have to knowpersonally after you know, knowing everything that you have been throughin life and yet to go through. What's it like for you hearing thefuture, president of the United States mention the Trans Community. In hisacceptance speech I mean I mean it's two thousand and twentyfirst of all so way to be here, but, secondly yeah it's important, it'sreally important and it's nice to finally be able to say you know thanks.That's really great, as opposed to please stop saying those things. Theyreally really hurt people, you know,...

...there's been a boom of big namecelebrities coming out as trance, bisexual, nonbinary and gay. We haven'tyet fully convinced the LGB of transinclusion in our group. How do westart having the conversation with mainstream United States of how toinclude the transcommunity into society? And what can I do as a gay LatinoFabulous Man Du to help with the Trans Movement? You know people people don't realize that the reasonwhy we are the LGBT community is because of gender actually and becausewe're all impacted were all oppressed by what people think ofgender. We live in a society where people say if you're a man, then youhave to be with a woman and if you're a woman, you have to be with a man.That's HETEROSEXISM RIGHT NOW! Imagine if you are a woman who becomes a man ora man who becomes a woman you're, also not doing it right right in the sameway that heterosexist culture says, if you're a man who wants to be with menor a woman who wants to be with women or someone who wants to be with bothyou're. Not right does that make sense. So it's like we're oppressed for thesame reason. It's because people who are even you know, moremainstream or rather more traditional, have decided that there's this way thatwe have to be, and if you're not doing it, particularly with your gender, thenyou're not right. So the idea that less and I will say, bisexuals, get a lot ofguff, also, and so most itcols are, you know, are really actually veryunderstanding of transpeople. I would say that it's lesbians and gays who arestuck in a binary way of thinking as well, and it doesn't make sense becauseit's sort of like hitting yourself in the face right, your you're oppressedfor the same reason so turning around and doing it to us, makes no senseright. Well, as the gate community always said,you know what what I do in the bedroom doesn't affect you. You know you should still support me.What's the same with the transcommunity, you know we don't have to go through agender journey or an identification journey, and it really doesn't affectus to the point that we should try to to put it in a box or shut it away.It's about the person. It's not about what they have to go through. It's youknow the same reasons that we want acceptance is the same reason whyanybody wants acceptance, and I want to talk about the the majormilestones that you've had in your career, making Trans and televisionhistory not once but twice. How has your career changed from those moments?Has there been a big shift? What's the biggest change in your career thatyou've? Seen from these milestones, you know, having you know, having a really bighistoric television break back in two thousand and fifteen brought me intothe TV world right into TV and film and took me from I had a national, actuallyinternational, theater career for a long time before that, so it wasn'tlike I just like, walked off the street...

...right. It's just right. I got T on ofmore people and and that's what happens every time every time there's like abig newsworthy thing, people start to see you right and as atransperson as an actor and sort of all of my most important identities beingseen and people saying. Oh, I see, I see your potential, I see what you cando right. That's all! I need to keep moving on this path, and so I'mgrateful for every every moment that happens and every door that thatcontinues to open you- and I have- and I have talkedbefore very openly about this- Is there apopularity contest that transwomen in Hollywood are winning over transmen?You know there seems to be this glamorization of of some of theactresses that we love seen in their gowns, and you know. I believe thatthere's a bit of a popularity contest, do you think actors like Eliott pagecoming out will kind of shift that focus, so it's all inclusive or do youeven think it's a nit issue? Well, I mean first of all, forty fourtranswomen have been murdered this year, so the visibility that comes comes witha price right, and so I would really hesitate to say popularity context,though I know where you're coming from when you're fright, what you're sayingdeel a lot more transwimen than we see man and yes, part of that, is theglamor right. We love that right. We Love Glamor, we love Gawons, we lovefemininity, unto we don't, which is always really interesting right. Theway that sexism and Massaganhe plays out isn't that interesting, veryinteresting, Yoknoli right, and so you know, transmen and masculinity ingeneral is less showyn right, and so I think that'sthat's one part of it right. People just think. Oh okay, you're a dude nowand that's actually not the case right. Like transman Tran Masculine people, wecome with a much deeper story and we have so much to say about what it meansto be a man. That's why I wrote the show becoming a man in a hundred andtwenty seven easy steps, it's kind of a joke. You know what an on Ta I like anITA furniture pace, ikeit's like that, so people are really sleeping ontransmasculinity th. They really need to see the stories that we have to telland that's kind of my biggest mission is like helping people see thosestories. Helping people see my community and realize what coolexciting stories we have to bring. We are talking in our next issue ofMetrosource, we're talking with glad, and I did more reacher cowas understandingwhat a pressure they've put on studios to have consultants from theLGBTCOMMUNITY, which I know you've been doing I in the last few years. Whatexactly does a consultant from our community do and what is Hollywood doing rightautomatically and what are some of the mistakes that you see that as aconsultant, you kind of have to educate Hollywood yeah. So the reason why wehave to have consultant is because we...

...don't have an particularlytransconsultants right. We don't have transpeople in the positions of powerto tell the stories, so you know I work with, for instance, a lot of susgenderwriters who are trying to tell transgender stories and until such atime as transgender writers can get their stories made right now there areonly two transpeople who have had features. You know big popular features made inthe last year right so that you think about all of the writers for all of thefilms right. That's a small number so and really like artistry is artistry. We you know. Areyou know it's complicated, but at the same time transpeople have a reallyspecific perspective, and if you're, not trans, you don't see it. You justcan't you just can't in the same way like in a similar bit different way.That, like I can't write a black person story right, there are going to bethings that I simply cannot see right and I accept that as a white person,and I would rather hear a black person tell their story right because it'simportant that they do that. So when someone brings me on as atransconsultant, I'm able to look and go. Okay. Here are the problems withyour script, because you don't have that experience. You wouldn't rowthat these things do or don't happen. So I starnt there. Then we go into youknow. Go on to set. I make sure that all the people are trained on the setso that everybody uses the correct pronouns for the actor right and makesure that they're taking care of them so that the actor can just come andjust act just be an actor and just shine right, and then we make sure toothat the director isn't like focusing on somebody's atoms, apple or handsright doing these visual tropes right. That are the way that all of ourhistory, if you watch the Netflix documentary disclosure, it shows youvery clearly all of the stereotypes that Hollywood has created, that Cpeople how to see transpeople right. So I go in there and I help them not makethose problems, and, what's amazing, is that so many people really get this nowand they're like yes, we absolutely have to do this. I just got a calltoday. You know we're writing a trans character into the script. Can youplease check it and make sure that you know we're doing it right and then canyou come and do the rest of your work on the production? Yes, absolutelythere are. There is no problem with asking forhelp in this regard, and it is the one place at we as a society right we'retrying to build bridges and we're trying to make each other really. Apart of you know this this this I'm doing this. You know what I mean thisconnection, that we all yeah right. Yes, there are going to be things that youdon't know so ask somebody who does right somebody who's professionit is toknow who can help. You there's nothing wrong with that, and it actually justmakes a much better story. As you see with you for Yo people love you for you,they love the Trans Representation there. It's because Hunter Shaefferherself has a lot to do with it, and I back her up on that and make sure thatwhat she's, what she's bringing is really really showcased and highlightedand enjoyed...

...ow it's funny when we were having ourfirst kind of conversations together. You know what I was saying is you knowwe don't have this wealth of transactors to pull from to tell thesestories. There was the whole scarlet Johanson. You know controversy and wecan't say that anymore. We can't say now we don't have any highly visibletransactors, and that is such a difference of I think, even two years up until you know the summer, covid hasmade a lot of actors spend time with themselves so to speak and then behonest about who they are and then kind of f the world. I need to live formyself and are coming out left and right. It's A. I can't keep up witheverything. It's wonderful, it's great yeah, Tinto, think about all of theACORS who couldn't come out like when we were kids right who couldn't comeout because it would cost in their whole careers and then, when I find outthat, like the mom on family ties who my family watched all the time was alesbian. You know what I mean like what would that have done for me to knowthat so many of the stars that I was watching growing up were like me rightand now, kids now don't have to go through that feeling of like why youknow this sort of mine in a box. You know feeling of like: Why do I feel soinvisible? What am what am I running up against here? Well, and it's part ofthat- and it's also, the language is now being seen on on major televisionon the big screen so that families have this language to even have theconversation when I was young and kind of having these sexual feelings. It wasso in the closet coming from a Latin family coming from a conservativeCatholic family and there were no gay programs growing up. So we didn't evenhave that language, and I thought you know it was some evil secret, because Iwasn't seein it displaye and I didn't even know how to put those feelingsinto words, because I hade never seen it to your point. So what part of hitsrepresentation is you know we're having conversationsabout gender identity and sexuality, Trans Youth seemed to becoming outyounger and younger and supported by their parents by the way in relation toyour own journey. Do you think individual should wait to start thetransition process? Is there a young, that's too young? So this is one of those issues thatsist people make up right. It's called concern trolling and there's this wholethere's a book about it, where they're trying to say that transman or you knowlock up your daughters, we're coming for them, okay, so this is actually not really atransissue. This is sis people having feelings about things that they don'tunderstand. Okay, I'm just you know, I'm emembgoing to be real with youabout this yeah yeah. I was three years old and I knew that Iwas tranpced. Okay, I knew that I was trands for my entire life and there wasno language there. Weren't people that I could look at to find out it took meuntil I was twenty to be able to find like to be able to meet somebody likeme who could help me understand my own story and then become the person Iwanted to be. I spent I became clinically depressed hat age. Eleven Iwent through puberty, suicidal and all...

...of that could have been halted. All ofthat could have been helped by people around me grown ups around mesaying, and look I'm not blaming anybody because they didn't have thelanguage either right, but kids today now have grown ups aroundthem. Who can say okay, this is probably what's going on for you. Sohow can we support you? How come Ye make sure you're not bullied? How canwe make sure that you feel okay, when this world is constantly doing this?firehose of what Masculineity anfeminy should be like what you should looklike and how you should act as a boy or a girl right? How can we keep you safeinside of that and know that who you are is what matters the most right, I'mnot talking about any kind of hormones or surgery which, by the way it is justso you know it is actually not very easy at all for a minor to get hormonesand especially not to have surgery. But I tell you what I'd rather have a kidwho transitions than a dead kid, and that is how serious this is. So Iinsist people to stop having opinions about it and start thinking about thechildren who are actually killing themselves at a rate, much higher okaythan lesbian or gay kids do all right and I need you to start havingcompassion and going well. Maybe we could be supportive rather than being achild's first bully. That's the reality of the situation that people need toreally take to heart. You know, that's what I got to say about it. You know, and it is kind of true it'sjust like, whatever kind of fear we can put on. I you know. With this wholepolitical bulsve been through, I had a conversation from somebody from highschool that I had no clue was so conservative should have known comingfrom OC and we were talking about same sex marriage and they related it tosomebody going after their kids in the bathroom, because they allowtransgender people into a bathroom number one that wasn' even part of theconversation. We were having number two that's where they were equating theLGBT Equality Movement to was that instance, which we know that is themost bullshit thing. I've ever heard brought up you're talking about a petalfile number one you're, not even talking about gender identity issues,and it's not even it's so ridiculous. In my mind that that conversation wentthere, and so I didn't have the energy, unfortunately, to try to even educate,because at that point it was. It was so ridiculous to me, but I want to talkabout your film becoming a man in a hundred twenty seven steps are easysteps, so we know an Hil it. I, the Film Festival Circuit, but we're instupid COVID, so you didn't actually get to see it on the big screen thathas got to be so frustrating on sommady levels, because I know how many years this project, it's literally your lives, work likeliterally or lifes work, tell tell our audience what the film isabout and tell me what you kind of Wank,...

...the future of this film to be becauseit kind of had like a like a false party yeah. Well, I mean I mean it'swonderful. We got into Tribecca, we got into out fast. We had yo, know peopleloved it. We got great reviews, so that's all good now we're in theprocess of getting distribution so that it can come to a screen near you. The project is it's a one man show special like Yourekind of used to, but it's again pushing the boundaries and it's a littledifferent. We took live footage of me in front ofan audience, but we also did some experimental and cool stuff inside of astudio, because every single one of the stories of the one hundred and twentyseven stories in this project has like a different feel and a different voice.If you will, and every person is made up of a multiplicity of stories right,you have great stories and hard stories and funny stories, and you knowridiculous stories and that's all part of who you are so inone hour we kind of put together the sort of audience favorites and just thestrongest stories that really look at what it means to become a man right andwhat that can mean and it just sort of blows. The top off the one men showspecial genre and also everything that I think you know about being a man Bo. I hope you get to see it. You Wall. Well, it's coming out les good, so a hundred an twenty seven easysteps. What if we were to kind of you know put this on on the step level,what was the hardest step and what was the easiest stup? So the hardest step was, as I said, youknow I grew up with no language around this, and so the hardest step was justgoing. Oh, this is what I am. People want to tell you that you're mentallyill, that your attention seeking that you know, there's Som something elsewrong with you when really like nature is diverse and gender is diverse,and there have always been people like me in every culture across all historyand time. So it's really just like a very simple answer right so like justgetting the simplest answer that like Oh, I am what I knew myself to be atage three, and now I'm going to live my life. That was the hardest part. Theeasiest part comes from that first step right as soon as you accept yourselfand just say, you know what you can have your opinion. That's fine, but itactually doesn't change the fact that I'm sitting here in front of you havingthis life right once you have that kind of confidence. You can move into therest of your life as the person that you are and just have those experiences.All of those amazing experiences that make you who you are what I love about this boom ofrepresentation and access to education and Knowledgeis that we are on coveringfigures from history figures from Hollywood that are gay trands and nowwe're able to kind of share their stories, which I love Hbo Max is DokuSeries Equal. Where in your youth,...

...would you ever imagine that you as atransman would be playing a Gayman for a major cable network telling theestories I mean even ten years ago, that would have been like no, no N, N N. no,that must have been somewhat surreal kind of filming that thinking aboutthes circle that it that that experience was it's wonderful and Imean I will say even now. It's still hard for people to look at me for forSIS gender roles I mean I still have to. I have to tellpeople I'm trans for them to know that I am but in the acting world the rightyou know they're like Oh, I don't know, I can't see it so you know it was. Itwas a nice nice thing and it happened because I look like craid walk. CRADRodwell, my hair is much longer I'll bet at the time you know covid hair. At the time I looked a lot like craid rodbell andthey said okay, he can act. He's got you know he can do this part. Iactually auditioned for the role that Theo Germain played, which was a on binary transcharacter. That was thebull that I was asked to audition for, but when they were looking at itthey're like he looks like cred Rod. Well, he he should totally play himands. Thankfully, you know as a as an intelligent and bunch of producers, Imean HBO is a wonderful place for thinking. People and the wholeproduction crew was Lgbtq and they realize right if we're doing the workof expansive representation. Let's just go ahead and do it. You know I didn't turn it O now. Is this aconversation that you have to keep having with? Let's say your agent ormanager like put me in front, you know I want to be put in front of all roles.Is that something you constantly have to say, or is it like? What's coming toou most as an actor right now? Well, it's less that you know myrepresentation really gets it and there they get that I can play I'm an actor. I can play a role rightand that my gender, actually you know people get all confused because theyrethe whole transgender actors and transgender roles thing. That's becausetransender actors weren't being invited to participate in transtender roles.Okay, it's now it's about workplace equality if we want to bring it down tothat level. So you know at this point we're tryingto move forward. The next step is: If transactors can place this people, thenyes we're much closer to the role to the to the place where we can all playwhatever roles right, but you have to get to that equality first and we'renot there. Yet my team understands I'm an actor. I canact, let's just go forward, but then they run into and have to do. Educationwith casting directors with directors with producers with financers, withdistributors, write all of these layers and layers of people who still have tobe educated to understand that it's really about what an actor brings tothe role right in an equal way right.

This is this is what we meat from thebeginning. Is that make sense about actors just being actors? Yeah Yeah?That's that's exactly right. You know we were talking before we startrecording about how we're just kind of tired you know this year has beendifficult for anybody on any level, but then we've had to fight what'shappening socially politically way. Back from the vil protest to current presidency. To just whathappened this last week and thet, we had price season and that I know thatyou did a lot of digital pride stuff because that's kind of WHATT's expectedwhen you're, you know a trail blazer, but there also comes at time where youmust feel you know. Every interview you give is going to talk about LGBT issues.They're going to talk about your Makng History, n they're, going to talk aboutwhat your opinions are. Does that just kind of get a little exhausting? It'slike you always have to be. Onyou always have to have your facts. Youkind of know what the conversation is going to be about or kind of circleabout, and then we have to deal with covid and then we have to deal withyeah. You still have to audition. You still have to make money. You stillhave to film stuff. This last year must have been prettydamn exhausting for you. How do you work that through? I call it activistfatigue? How do you work through that and breate? Because it's not easy? Well,you know I'm still a white person. I still you know what I mean for as hardas it is for me, and, and you know you bring up a lot of different piecesright like certainly, I wish that we could have deeper conversations. I wishI didn't have to answer the same five questions about what it is to betransgendered, but I did sign up for that. Right, like I am open land. Iwill talk about it because I do want us all to collectively move forward and wedon't all move forward until we all move forward right. So you know I'minvested in that, and that is part of what I'm here to do. But you know I ama white person who has all kinds of privilege. I have the privilege ofhaving press support me and talk about me and be able to talk abouttransgender issues in the news right. I'm safe and comfortable at home, I'mnot living with an abusive partner or an abusife family right like there are.This time has really shown me all of the privileges that I do have, and it'sbecome my fuel for using that privilege. All of the many privileges that I haveto stand, insolidarity with black lives matter. You know what I mean with withall of the people who are impacted and who don't you know even quear youthright who don't have the power or the empowerment that I do right.Empowerment is privilege right, and I have that so I'm going to use it andI'm going to you know, share because again we don't almove forward until weall move forward. So I love that yeah. That's why I really really Le Love that okay, all right,...

...you know we could talk and talk andtalk because there's so many issues going on right now and it's like, but I feelthat kind of energy its like we've talked so much and there's still somuch more to talk about, and unfortunately, we see how much more ournation needs to be educated on so many different issues and the struggle isstill real. You know we're looking at this new presidency, like everything isgoing to change overnight and what we've seen from the actions of millionsof our citizens is we're not even we're not even close to people understandingthe war is definitely not over it's just beginning and, unfortunately, Ithink a lot of our youth and a lot of our community members are going to becaught in the crossfire itd. So we have to continue having thisconversations you know I was. I was surprised by how many of our communitywere not politically involved, didn't want to make a stance on their socialmedia and not Sayi that you need to bepressured to do something you don't want to do, but now its the time tocome forward. Yeh Yeh, I menyou know I'm a bigbeliever in solidarity and whet you do that Youre assistender Gamman right,you could go. Have your pardon totally erday! You could completely ignoretransgender issues, but you're insolidarity. You Use your platform toshare my story right, like you do what you can do, where you are with what youhave right. Not Everybody is cut out to be a Raro activist right, yeah.Everybody can make the decision to be insolidarity with other people and tosay I know what's right and what's wrong, I'm going to make sure that youknow that I'm on your side right, and that is what we need more than anything atthis moment. We need to know. You know that we're together on this right thatthat it can seem overwhelming. But you know we have to remember that, like qanon and all of these really out there folks they're, actually avery small number of people with a very big microphone right and so the morethat we remind each other, Hey I'm on your side. I got your back acrosswhatever difference is that we have with one another and if we just e startwhere we are with what we have and help others from there, you don't have to goout holding signs, you don't even have to put it on social media because,honestly, just putting it on social media and not doing anything else isjustd out of a upside of tit. Yeah Owa meanyou are with what you have and justyou know, what's good. We are all very clear on what is right and what iswrong right now. So do the right thing. That's it no matter what you do we'rein a field of shit. Everybody pick up your shovels and dig where you are. Youknow what I mean yeah and I think part of that too, is what you touched onearliers. You know asking the questions like I very candaly, I learned morefrom you and our in our time ind our early time together, because you werelike you can ask me anything, there's no dumb question and it's like well,you know we're so afraid to ask something: that's going to bepolitically incorrect, we're so afraid to were so afraid to offend people, butat the same time, if we're not asking...

...certain questions and if thosequestions are not being received on a positive note, then we don't learn, andso I've learned so much about you because you, let me ask stupidridiculous questions and now I'm a more informed person and I feel part of thefight because I understand, but I had to ask some dumb questions becausewe're still not asking the right questions, we're still not answeringthe right questions, because you know we're so afraid to offend people.Absolutely, I will say not everybody who is like me right. Some people justwant to live their lives, Ono to talk about it right so, but the thing isthere are so many people like me all over social media right. So you caneducate yourself. Sometimes people ask me questions online and I just writethem back. Here's a link where you can find it and I send them to Google. Doyou know what I mean because t e Paso Yeah, but you do have to educateyourself? Sometimes you get lucky and you have someone in your life who'sreally willing to give you their perspective, and it's always just oneperson's perspective right. I am more of an expert right. I have a broadervision of things and a broader education on things, so I can tell younot just my perspective but a kind of more academic and and experiencedperspective. But you know, if you don't have that person in your life, you canfind that person on instagram right now. You know what I mean not Juf me, butall kinds of folks right go! Listen to peppermit.
