What’s it like to be a transgender parent? Or a transgender celebrity? Or even the first out trans actor on a daytime soap opera?
At 7pm tonight, best friends and traveling performers Scott Turner Schofield and S. Bear Bergman will answer these questions and more at an evening of storytelling at the Center For Sex and Culture. The event is a fundraiser for the community center, which nearly lost its longtime home at 10th and Mission to a recent rent hike.
Schofield, a transman known for performing one-person shows on transgender issues, made history in 2014 when he was cast as Nick on the CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful. He became the first trans actor to play a major role on a soap.
He’ll be joined by longtime collaborator S. Bear Bergman, a publisher, author, columnist, parent and activist. “[Bear is] one of the most radically queer people I know,” Schofield said. “He has an incredible ability to include everyone at the table; he won’t stop until everyone is included.”
