Singer in transgender process
Date: September 10, 2014
This topic could be placed in several categories, and I am surprised that I couldn't find this same scenario in post history. There are two issues:
What to wear?
I have a high school aged alto who is in the beginning process of transitioning from female to male. She has stated she feels more comfortable in a tux, but is open to what our organization feels is best, and would be willing to wear a dress.
Have you had experience with a situation like this before? Did you have him/her match his/her section, or how she/he identifies him/herself?
Where to sleep?
How do you make room assignments with transgender singers? With their current biological sex, or the gender with which they identify?
Thank you for sharing your experiences!
