We, Bea Cordelia and Daniel Kyri, are a transgender woman & queer Black man working with other LGBTQ and allied artists. Our mission as creators is to tell new stories in new ways.
As members of marginalized groups, we are painfully aware of the harmful stereotypes broadcast about our communities and the violence that too often follows. That's why we tell compassionate, complex, competent stories about diverse individuals: to give the dehumanized their humanity back.
In 2016, Autostraddle published an analysis of all 105 US television portrayals of trans women to date, finding that trans women mostly "die or are dying, they kill other people or are killed…They are remarkably understanding when potential partners are disgusted by them…" Additionally, GLAAD's annual Where We Are on TV report found that in the 2017-2018 television season, a mere 1% of all series regulars on broadcast television were Black LGBTQ people.
the T fills this gap of sincere, nuanced representation about our communities. It is hilarious, heartfelt, sexy, and devastating.
