Peterson Toscano
A performance based on transgendered or differently gendered characters in the Bible. (yes! they exist!)

I met Peterson in 2008 in Portland, OR when they did a show at the local queer youth center. I was blown away after what I saw in “Transfigurations,” a one “man” show about trans/differently gendered folks in the Bible. My first reaction was to question his sources (in a curious way)since these stories challenged so much of what I grew up being taught; but what I found that not only is Peterson highly educated in these topics, they allow us to understand and see these stories in an entirely different light.

    Yes yes yes! Gender variance and nonconformity is ALL over the Bible and many many religious traditions. Example / fun fact: Baptism taken apart and looked at piece by piece can be seen as a sex-change ritual.

    Anyone who wants to geek out on sex, queers, gender, and religion should track me down and we chat.
