CSA Open Call for Transgender Actors a Global Success

by ranielle

On Sunday, October 22, 2017, 45 CSA members saw approximately 500 underrepresented transgender actors (including non-binary, gender non-conforming and genderqueer actors) in 12 locations across 5 countries.

PORTLAND TEAM (L to R): Ranielle Gray, Casting Associate CSA and Eryn Goodman, Casting Director CSA.

We here at Cast Iron Studios are grateful for the opportunity to partner with CSA and the CSA Inclusion & Diversity Committee for this landmark open call.

The day was a big success and we were excited to meet a new pool of up-and-coming actors.

We look forward to doing it again next year. Many thanks to everyone who turned out, and here’s to more equity and diversity on screen!
