After being fired from a teaching position for being transgender, Rebecca Kling began her crusade to educate the masses by stirring up conversation. In her one-women show, she takes on all of our nagging questions about what it means to be trans and introduces a vocabulary for discussing gender-identity issues. While this former teacher is clearly a talented lecturer and her show feels like a master class on understanding gender, she is careful not to stand on a soapbox. She gracefully jumps from personal experience to political ideology to society’s black-and-white understanding of gender. Blending humor with challenging ideas, she invites her class to join in the conversation.
