With an increasing trend of mainstream film and television continuing to cast straight actors to play trans roles, Outfest and renowned acting coach, Anthony Meindl teamed up to develop a program that would provide five scholarships to trans and non-binary individuals to train at the Actor Workshop. The goal is to not only provide free training, but to assure that the fellows have a safe, affirming space in which to develop their talent.


Applications for the Anthony Meindl Actors Fellowship coming soon.
