The Future Of Theatre Is Trans An Exploration Of Transgender Identities In Diasporic Communities Through Performance Writing, Ayla Lecochran, Ayla Xuan Chi Le Sullivan Jan 2019

The Future Of Theatre Is Trans An Exploration Of Transgender Identities In Diasporic Communities Through Performance Writing, Ayla Lecochran, Ayla Xuan Chi Le Sullivan

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The purpose of this thesis is to explore how performance writing about transgender identities in theatre expands upon histories within the Vietnamese and Black American communities, with regards to cultural practises and assimilation into the United States. With a synthesis of autobiographical experiences and queer theory, I will self produce an original play exploring the nature of intersectional identities across race, gender, and citizenship.

Last Stop is an original full length play that will highlight a cast of only people of colour and especially, a cast of majority Asian Americans. As a transgender Vietnamese and Black American undergraduate, I seek ...


Microaggressions Within The Lgbtq+ Community: An Autoethnography, Erika A. Perez Montes May 2018

Microaggressions Within The Lgbtq+ Community: An Autoethnography, Erika A. Perez Montes

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This autoethnography is about different points in my life where I committed microaggressions towards the LGBTQ+ community specific to different genders, sexual orientations and/or how people in the community present themselves.

Intersexion, Cynthia Davis Apr 2017

Intersexion, Cynthia Davis

English Theses & Dissertations

A combination of memoir, reportage, and opinion writing, Intersexion explores the realities of growing up intersex while also examining the conservative mindset that caused the narrator—a happily married suburban mother—to lose a tenure-track position at a Christian university for being unwilling to label Danny’s intersex condition as “repugnant” and “offensive to God.”


At Your Prettiest/Your Name Is, Jake Phillips May 2015

At Your Prettiest/Your Name Is, Jake Phillips

Eddie Mabry Diversity Award

This is a poem showing the progression of my feelings in relation to my gender throughout my life. I identify as both non-binary and as a genderfluid demi-boy, which means I feel my gender changes occasionally, but I usually feel male. I am a member of the trans community, specifically the non-binary portion within it, and I feel this poem accurately represents how that gender identification showed itself as I grew up, even before I realized I wasn't a girl.
