Introduction: Why Write This Book Now?

  • Conrad AlexandrowiczEmail author


In the introduction, Alexandrowicz lays out the origins of and justifications for the book, in both personal experience and professional observation. He argues that, despite the social and legal gains made on behalf of various sexual minorities, discrimination with reference to gender dissident student actors is alive and well and operating in the training institutions that feed professional theatre, film, and television in Canada and the US.
