I have learned more about the Trans andacting community in one happy hour was Scott then I have in all my educationalseminars and forums. Please welcome Mr Scott Scopefield Hay, everybody. Thank you, Alexander. That's such a I'm so honored by your and your thank you. I'm honored. We were just talking about I can't believe it's been somany years since we've known each other and the first time I was introduced youwas we met what six or seven years ago at this point? Yeah,it was your big press push for you being on the bold and the beautiful, which of course, you know, making TV history. So we're justgoing to get to it and, like I said, I just love thatyou. You just don't put on airs. It's like, who've got time forthat? So it's going to get right into it. I just haveto know personally, 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 his acceptance speech?I mean, I mean it's two thousand and twenty first of all, soway to be here, but suddenly, yeah, it's important. It's reallyimportant and 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.They really, really hurt people. You know, there's been a boom ofbig name celebrities coming out as trans,...

...bisexual, nine non binary and gay. We haven't yet fully convinced the LGB of Trans Inclusion in our group.How do we start having the conversation with mainstream United States of how to includethe Trans Community Into Society? And what can I do, as a gay, Latino Fabulous Man, do to help with the Trans Movement? You know, people, people don't realize that. The reason why we are the LGBTcommunity is because of gender actually, and because we're all impacted, we're alloppressed by how what people think of gender. We live in a society where peoplesay, if you're a man, then you have to be with awoman, 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 becomesa man or a man who becomes a woman, you're also not doing itright. Right, in the same way that heterosexist culture says if you're aman who wants to be with men, or a woman who wants to bewith women, or someone who wants to be with both, you're not right. Does that make sense? So it's like we're oppressed for the same reason. It's because people who are even, you know, more mainstream, orrather more traditional, have decided that there's this way that we have to beand if you're not doing it, particularly with your gender, then you're notright. So the idea that led and I will say bisexuals get a lotof guff also, and so mosticles are, you know, are really actually veryunderstanding of Trans People. I would say that it's lesbians and gays whoare stuck in a binary way of thinking as well. And it doesn't makesense because it's sort of like hitting yourself in the face. Right you're you'reoppressed for the same reason, so turning around and doing it to us makesno sense. Right well, and as the gate community always said, youknow what, what I do in the bedroom doesn't affect you. You know, you should still support me. What's the same of the Trans Community?You know, we don't have to go through a gender journey or an identificationjourney and it really doesn't affect us to the point that we should try toto 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 the same reasonsthat we want acceptance. Is the same reasons why anybody wants acceptance. AndI want to talk about the the major milestones that you've had in your career, making Trans and television history not once, but twise. How has your careerchanged from those moments? Has there been a big shift? What's thebiggest change in your career that you've seen from these milestones? You know,having, you know, having a really big historic television break back in twothousand and fifteen, brought me into the TV world. I and to TVand film and took me from I had a national, in actually international theatercareer for a long time before that. So it wasn't like I just likewalked off the street right. It's just...

...right. I got it front 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 a Transperson, as an actor, in sort of all of my most important identities beingseen and people saying, Oh, I see I see your potential, Isee what you can do. Right, that's all I need to keep movingon this path, and so I'm grateful for every every moment that happens andevery door that that continues to open. You and I've and I have talkedbefore very openly about this. Is there a popularity contest that Trans Women inHollywood are winning over Trans men? You know, there seems to be thisglamorization of some of the actresses that we love seeing in their gowns and youknow, I believe that there's a bit of a popularity contest. Do youthink actors like Elliott page coming out will kind of shift that focus so it'sall inclusive, or do you even think it's a niche issue? Well,I mean, first of all, forty four trans women have been murdered thisyear. So the visibility that comes comes with a price, right, andI so I would really hesitate to say popularity context. Bill. I knowwhere you're coming from. When you're friend what you're saying. See a lotmore trans women then we see men. And Yes, part of that isthe glamor, right. We love that, right. We Love Glamor, welove gowns, we love femininity until we don't, which is always reallyinteresting. Right, the way that sexism and massage and he plays out isn'tthat interesting? Very interesting, right. And so you know, trans menand masculinity in general is less showy, right, and so I think that'sthat's one part of it. Right. People just think, okay, you'rea dude now, and that's actually not the case. Right. Like Transmen, trand masculine people, we come with a much deeper story and wehave so much to say about what it means to be a man. That'swhy I wrote the show becoming a man in a hundred and twenty seven easysteps. It's kind of a joke, you know what I mean? Thatif I an idea furniture base like it's like that. So so people arereally sleeping on transmasculinity. They they really need to see the stories that wehave to tell, and that's kind of my biggest mission, is like helpingpeople see those stories, helping people see my community and realize what cool,exciting stories we have to bring. We are talking in our next issue ofMetro source. We're talking with glad and I did more research. I wasunderstanding what a pressure they've put on studios to have consultants from the LGBT community, which I know you've been doing in the last few years. What exactlydoes a consultant from our community do and what is Hollywood doing right automatically,and what are some of the mistakes that you'd see that as a consultant,you kind of have to educate Hollywood.

Yeah, so the reason why wehave to have consultants is because we don't have, and particularly Trans Consultants Rightwe don't have trans people in the positions of power to tell the stories.So you know, I work with, for instance, a lot of CISGENDERwriters who are trying to tell transgender stories and until such a time as transgenderwriters can get their stories made. Right now there are only two trans peoplewho have had features, you know, big popular features, made in thelast year. Right. So that the if you think about all of thewriters for all of the film's right, that's a small number. So andreally like artistry is artistry. We, you know, are you know it'scomplicated, but at the same time trans people have a really specific perspective andif you're not trans, you don't see it. You just can't, youjust can't in the same way, like in a similar but different way that, like I can't write a black person story right. There are going tobe things that I simply cannot see right and I accept that as a whiteperson and I would rather hear a black person tell their story right, becauseit's important that they do that. So when someone brings me on as atrans consultant, I'm able to look and go, okay, here are theproblems with your script, because you don't have that experience, you wouldn't knowthat these things do or don't happen. So I start there. Then wego into you know, go on to set I make sure that all thepeople are trained on the set so that everybody uses the correct pronouns for theactor right and make sure that they're taking care of them so that the actorcan just come and just act, just be an actor and just shine right. And then we make sure too, that the director isn't like focusing onsomebody's atoms, apple or hands right, doing these visual tropes right. Thatare the way that all of our history. If you watch the Netflix documentary disclosure, it shows you very clearly all of the stereotypes that Hollywood has createdthat to teach people how to see Trans People Right. So I go inthere and I help them not make those problems. And what's amazing is thatso many people really get this now and they're like, yes, we absolutelyhave to do this. I just got a call today. You know,we're writing a trans character into the script. Can you please check it and makesure that you know we're doing it right, and then can you comeand do the rest of your work on the production? Yes, absolutely,there are. There is no problem with asking for help in this regard andit is the one place that we as a society right we're trying to buildbridges and we're trying to make each other really a part of you know this, this, this, I'm doing this. You know what I mean, thisconnection that we all have right, yes, it. There are goingto be things that you don't know. So ask somebody who does right,somebody WHO's profession it is to know who can help you. There's nothing wrongwith that and it actually just makes a much better story. As you see, with you for it. People love you for you, they love theTrans Representation there. It's because Huntersche for herself has a lot to do withit and I back her up on that and make sure that what she's whatshe's bringing is really really showcase and highlighted...

...and enjoyed. You know, it'sfunny when we were having our first kind of conversations together, you know whatI was saying is, you know, we don't have this wealth of transactorsto pull from to tell these stories. There was the whole Scarlett Johnson,you know, controversy, and we can't say that anymore. We can't saynow we don't have any highly visible transactors and that is such a difference ofI 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 be honest about who they are and then kind of f the world. I need to live for myself and are coming out left and right.It's a I can't keep up with everything. It's wonderful as it's great. Yeah, they think about all of the actors who couldn't come out, likewhen we were kids, right, who couldn't come out because it would costthem their whole careers. And then when I find out that, like themom on family ties, who my family watched all the time, was alesbian, you know what I mean, like, what would that have donefor me to know that so many of the stars that I was watching growingup were like me? Right, and now kids now don't have to gothrough that feeling of like why, you know, this sort of mine ina box, you know, feeling of like why do I feel so invisible? What am I what am I running up against here? Well, andit's part of that, and it's also the language is now being seen onon major television, on the big screen, so that families have this language toeven have the conversation. When I was young and kind of having thesesexual feelings. It was so in the closet, coming from a Latin family, coming from a conservative Catholic family, and there were no gay programs growingup, so we didn't even have that language and I thought, you know, it was some evil secret because I wasn't seen it displayed and I didn'teven know how to put those feelings into words because I had never seen itto your point. So, but part of this representation is, you know, we're having conversations about gender identity and sexuality. Trans Youth seemed to becoming out younger and younger and supported by their parents. By the way,in relation to your own journey, do you think individual should wait to startthe transition process? Is there a young that's too young? So this isone of those issues that sys people make up, right, it's called concerntrolling and there's this whole there's a book about it, where they're trying tosay that trans man or are, you know, lock up your daughters werecoming for them. Okay, so this is actually not really a trans issue. This is sis people having feelings about things that they don't understand. Okay, I'm just, you know, I rember be real with you about this? Yeah, I was three years old and I knew that I was tramps. Okay, I knew that I was trans for my entire life and Ithere was no language, there weren't people that I could look at to findout. It took me until I was twenty to be able to find like, to be able to meet somebody like me who could help me understand myown story and then become the person I wanted to be. I spent Ibecame clinically depressed that age eleven, I...

...went through puberty, suicidal, andall of that could have been halted, all of that could have been helpedby people around me, grown ups around me, saying, and look,I'm not blaming anybody, because they didn't have the language either. Right,but kids today now have grown ups around them who can say, okay,this is probably what's going on for you. So how can we support you?How can we make sure you're not bullied? How can we make surethat you feel okay when this world is constantly doing this fire hose of whatmasculinity and Femini should be like, what you should look like and how youshould act as a boy or a girl? Right, how can we keep yousafe inside of that and know that who you are is what matters themost. Right. I'm not talking about any kind of hormones or surgery,which, by the way, it is just so you know. It isactually not very easy at all for a minor to get hormones and especially notto have surgery. But I tell you what, I'd rather have a kidwho transitions then a dead kid, and that is how serious this is.So I need sist people to stop having opinions about it and start thinking aboutthe children who are actually killing themselves at a rate much higher. Okay,then, lesbian our gay kids do all right, and I need you tostart having compassion and going well, maybe we could be supportive rather than beinga child'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 aboutit. You know, and it is kind of true. It's just likewhatever kind of fear we can put on. I you know, with this wholepolitical bullshit been through, I had a conversation from somebody from high schoolthat I had no clue was so conservative. Should I know, I'm coming fromOC and we were talking about same sex marriage and they related it tosomebody going after their kids in the bathroom because they allow transgender people into abathroom. Number one, that was even part of the conversation we were having. Number two, that's where they were equating the LGBT Equality Movement to.Was that instance between know, that is the most bullshit thing I've ever heardbrought up. You're talking about a pedophile, number one. You're not even talkingabout gender identity issues and it's not even it's so ridiculous in my mindthat that conversation went there and so I didn't have the energy, unfortunately,to try to even educate because at that point it was it was so ridiculousto me. But I want to talk about your film. Becoming a manin a hundred twenty seven steps are easy steps, so we know, andhill the film festivals it, but we're in stupid covid so you didn't actuallyget to see it on the big screen. That has got to be so frustratingon so many levels because I know how many years this project it's literallyyour life's work, like literally your life's work. Tell tell our audience whatthe film is about and tell me what you kind of want the future ofthis film to because it kind of had...

...like a like a false party.Yeah, well, I mean, I mean it's wonderful. We got intoRebecca, we got into outfast, we had people loved it, we gotgreat reviews, so that's all good. Now we're in the process of gettingdistribution so that it can come to a screen near you. The project isit's a one man show, special like you're kind of used to, butit's again pushing the boundaries and it's a little different. We took live footageof me in front of an audience, but we also did some experimental andcool stuff inside of a studio, because every single one of the stories ofthe one hundred and twenty seven stories in this project has like a different feeland a different voice, if you will, and every person is made up ofa multiplicity of stories, right. You have great stories and hard storiesand funny stories and, you know, ridiculous stories, and that's all partof who you are. So in one hour we kind of put together andsort of audience favorites and just the the strongest stories that really look at whatit means to become a man, right, and what that can mean, andit just sort of blows the top off the one man show, specialgenre and also everything that I think you know about being a man. SoI hope you get to see it. You will well, it's coming outbesee good. So a hundred and twenty seven easy steps. What if wewere to kind of, you know, put this on the step level?What was the hardest step and what was the easiest step? So the hardeststep was, as I said, you know, I grew up with nolanguage around this, and so the hardest step was just going, Oh,this is what I am. People want to tell you that you're mentally ill, that your attention seeking, that you know there's some something else wrong withyou, when really, like, nature is diverse and gender is diverse andthere have always been people like me in every culture across all history and time. So it's really just like a very simple answer, right. So likejust getting the simplest answer that like, Oh, I am what I knewmyself to be at age three and now I'm going to live my life.That was the hardest part. The easiest part comes from that first step,right, as soon as you accept yourself and just say you know what,you can have your opinion that's fine, but it actually doesn't change the factthat I'm sitting here in front of you having this life right. Once youhave that kind of confidence, you can move into the rest of your lifeas the person that you are and just have those experiences, all of thoseamazing experiences that make you who you are. What I love about this boom ofrepresentation and access to education and knowledge is that we are on covering figuresfrom history, figures from Hollywood, that are gay trans, and now we'reable to kind of share their stories, which I love Hbo Max's Docu Series. Equal, we're in your youth.

Would you ever imagine that you,as a trans man, would be playing a gay man for a major cablenetwork telling these stories? I mean, even ten years ago that would havebeen like now, now, no, no, no, no, now. That must have been somewhat surreal kind of filming that. Thinking about thecircle that it, that that experience was, it's wonderful and I mean I willsay 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 tell peopleI'm trans for them to know that I am but in the acting world becauseright, you know, they're like, oh, I don't know, Ican't see it. So you know, it was it was a nice,nice thing, and it happened because I look like Craig Walk Craig Rodwell.My hair is much longer robbit at the time, you know, a covidhair. At the time. I looked a lot like Craig Rodwell and theysaid, okay, he can act, he's got you know, he cando this part. I actually auditioned for the role that feud main played,which was a non binary trans character. That was the role that I wasasked to audition for, but when they were looking at it, they're like, he looks like cred rod while he he should totally play him. AndSir, thankfully, you know, as a as an intelligent bunch of producers, I mean HBO is a wonderful place for thinking people and the whole productioncrew is Lgbtq and they realized right, if we're doing the work of expansiverepresentation, let's just go ahead and do it. You know, I didn'tturn it off. Now, is this the conversation that you have to keephaving with, let's say your agent or manager? Like put me in front. I you know, I want to be put in front of all roles. Is that something you constantly have to say, or is like what's comingto most as an actor right now? Well, it's less that. Youknow, my representation really gets it, and there they get that I canplay, I'm an actor, I can play a role right, and thatmy gender. Actually, you know, people get all confused because they're thewhole transgender actors and transgender roles thing. That's because transgender actors weren't being invitedto participate in transgender roles. Okay, it's about it's about workplace equality ifwe want to bring it down to that level. So you know, atthis point we're trying to move forward. The next step is if transactors canplace this people, then yes, we're much closer to the role, tothe the place where we can all play whatever roles right, but you haveto get to that equality first and we're not there yet. My team understandsI'm an actor, I can act, let's just go forward. But thenthey run into and have to do education with casting directors, with directors,with producers, with financiers, with distributors, right, all of these layers andlayers of people who still have to be educated to understand that it's reallyabout what an actor brings to the role, right, in an equal way.Right, this is this is what...

...we meant from the beginning. Doesthat make sense, about actors just being actors? Yeah, yeah, that'sthat's exactly right. You know, we were talking before we start recording abouthow we're just kind of tired. You know, this year has been difficultfor anybody on any level. But then we've had to fight what's happening sociallypolitically, way back from the blow protest to current presidency to just what happenedthis last week. And then we had pride season and that I know thatyou did a lot of digital pride stuff because that's kind of what's expected whenyou're, you know, a trailblazer. But they're also comes at time whereyou must feel you know, every interview you give is going to talk aboutLGBT issues, they're going to talk about your making history, they're going totalk about what your opinions are. Does that just kind of get a littleexhausting? It's like you always have to be on, you always to haveyour facts. You kind of know what the conversation is going to be about, or kind of circle about, and then we have to deal with covidand then we have to deal with yeah, you still have to audition, youstill have to make money, you still have to film stuff. Thislast year must have been pretty damn exhausting for you. How do you workthat through? I call it activists fatigue. How do you work through that andbreathe, because it's not easy. Well, you know, I'm stilla white person. I still you know what I mean, for as hardas it is for me and and you know, you bring up a lotof different pieces, right like. Certainly I wish that we could have deeperconversations. I wish I didn't have to answer the same five questions about whatit is to be transgender, but I did sign up for that. Rightlike, I am open and I will talk about it because I do wantus all to collectively move forward, and we don't all move forward until weall move forward. Right. So, you know I'm invested in that andthat is part of what I'm here to do. But you know, Iam a white person who has all kinds of privilege. I have the privilegeof having breast support me and talk about me and be able to talk abouttransgender issues in the news. Right I'm safe and comfortable at home. Inot living with an abusive partner or an abusive family right, like there are. This time has really shown me all of the privileges that I do haveand it's become my fuel for using that privilege, all of the many privilegesthat I have, to stand in solidarity with black lives matter, you knowwhat I mean, with with all of the people who are impacted and whodon't, you know, even Queer Youth Right, who don't have the poweror the empowerment that I do. Right, empowerment is privilege, right, andI have that. So I'm going to use it and I'm going to, you know, share, because, again, we don't all move forwarduntil we all move forward. So I love that. Yeah, that's beenreally really love that. Okay, all right, you know, we couldtalk and talk and talk, because there's...

...so many issues going on right nowand it's like, but I feel that kind of energy. It's like we'vetalked so much and there's still so much more to talk about and unfortunately,we see how much more our nation needs to be educated on so many differentissues and the struggle is still real. You know, we we're looking atthis new presidency like everything is going to change overnight, and what we've seenfrom the actions of millions of our citizens is we're not even we're not evenclose to people understanding the war is definitely not over. It's just beginning andunfortunately, I think a lot of our youth and a lot of our communitymembers are going to be caught in the crossfire, and so we have tocontinue having these conversations. You know, I was I was surprised by howmany of our community were not atally involved, didn't want to make a stance ontheir social media and not say that you need to be pressured to dosomething you don't want to do, but now's the time to come forward.Yeah, I mean, you know, I'm a big believer in solidarity.And when you do that, your assist gender gay man. Right, youcould go have your part totally. You were day, you could completely ignoretransgender issues, but you're in solidarity. You Use your platform to share mystory. Right, like you, you do what you can do where youare, with what you have. Right. Not Everybody is cut out to bea raw rock activist. Right. Yeah, everybody can make the decisionto be in solidarity with other people and to say I know what's right andwhat's wrong. I'm going to make sure that you know that I'm on yourside right, and that is what we need more than anything at this 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 thatlike q and on and all of these really out there folks, they're actuallya very small number of people with a very big microphone, right. Andso the more that we remind each other, Hey, I'm on your side,I got your back across whatever difference is that we have with one another, and if we just take start where we are, with what we have, and help others from there. You don't have to go out holding signs, you don't even have to put it on social media because honestly, justputting it on social media and not doing any thing else is just at thefoot side of that. Yeah, you want, I mean it's not youare with what you have and just you know what's good. We are allvery clear on what is right and what is wrong right now. So dothe right thing, that's it. No matter what you do, we're ina field of shit. Everybody, pick up your shovels and dig where youare. You know what I mean? Yeah, and I think part ofthat too, is what you touched on earlier, is, you know,asking the questions. Like I very candily, I learned more from you and arein our time and our early time together, because you were like youcan 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 be politicallyincorrecct. We're so afraid to offend people.

But at the same time, ifwe're not asking certain questions and if those questions are not being received ona positive note, then we don't learn. And so I've learned so much aboutyou because you let me ask stupid, ridiculous questions, and now I'm amore informed person and I feel part of the fight because I understand.But I had to ask the dumb questions because we're still not asking the rightquestions, we're still not answering the right questions because, you know, we'reso afraid to offend people. Absolutely, I will say not everybody is likeme right some people just want to live their lives and not talk about it. Right. So, but the thing is there are so many people likeme all over social media, right, so you can educate yourself. Sometimespeople ask me questions online and I just write them back, here's a linkwhere you can find it, and I send them to Google. Do youknow what I mean? Because it's like so, yeah, but you dohave to educate yourself. Sometimes you get lucky and you have someone in yourlife who's really willing to give you their perspective, and it's always just oneperson's perspective, right. I am more of an expert, right. Ihave a broader vision of things and a broader education on things, so Ican tell you not just my perspective but a kind of more academic and andexperienced perspective. But you know, if you don't have that person in yourlife, you can find that person on instagram right now. You know whatI mean? Not Me, but all kinds of folks. Right, golisten to peppermint.
