Keynote Speaker Announced!
Everyone...I'd like to introduce you to our 2019 SCTC Keynote Speaker, the incomparable Van Barnes!
In terms of Googleability, Van is probably best known as the first person to OUT the CIS male lead actor who was eventually fired from Amazon’s award winning and critically acclaimed TV show Transparent when she joined the #metoo movement, disclosing her experience working several seasons as Personal Assistant to the lead actor.
Although her first on-screen credit came in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1983 movie "Rumble Fish", she can be found on YouTube in the 1995 Wigstock movie as well as a string of 1990’s daytime talk show appearances, and was a NYC Club Kid in the early 90’s. She was also featured in two seasons of "I AM CAIT" on the E channel. She transitioned twice before she got it right and today is living her dream married to Big Daddy living a hetero-normative hillbilly lifestyle keeping chickens in the Ozark foothills of Missouri and does hair in nearby St. Louis.
Her Green Acres trans-life is inspirational to many as she offers her brutally honest satirical opinions about her journey. We are SO happy to have her with us for our 2019 conference!
