Jill Soloway

City Arts & Lectures

Jill Soloway is the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning creator of Transparent and I Love Dick. When Soloway's father came out as transgender, everything shifted. For one, the moment became the inspiration to push through the male-dominated landscape of Hollywood and create the award-winning TV series Transparent. Exploring identity, love, sexuality, and the blurring of boundaries, the show gave birth to a new cultural consciousness. But also, by eventually coming out as queer and non-binary, the lines on Soloway's own gender map began to be erased. In the essay collection She Wants It, Soloway chronicles the experience of transitioning from straight, divorced, mother of two--to non-binary genderqueer director, show creator, and activist.
