Jazz Congress 2019: Making Space for Transgender Voices

Panelists debate whether the jazz community has evolved in its openness to transgender and gender fluid artists

Transgender and gender fluid artists participate in an open conversation about acceptance, support, and challenges to diverse voices. Transgender artists have been present in jazz for decades, but has the jazz community evolved in its openness to transgender and gender fluid artists? Jazz Congress listens to and honors their voices and stories.
Panelists include Jennifer Leitham, Riley Mulherkar, and Chloe Rowlands. Katie Simon (WBGO/Jazz Night in America) moderates.
