WHY: Before “Transparent” swept the Globes and the EMMYS and before Caitlyn Jenner hit #1 on Twitter, the story of “Georgia" was being written by my friend, Joe Perales. it's a compelling and timely story that has been the subject of great debate in recent years. A topic that prejudice and fear has, for generations, been dictating public opinion, and will continue to do so until the very real struggles of those suffering the stigma, created by ignorance, has been told … and accepted.
On behalf of all of the George/Georgia's out there, both today and in the future, I/we thank you for your time and consideration to attend this reading.
