On this episode of Baring It All with Call Me Adam, on the Broadway Podcast Network, I am chatting with Scott Turner Schofield, award-winning actor, writer, & producer – a “trans influencer of Hollywood,” as coined by OUT Magazine.
Scott & I have a heartfelt discussion about being a transgender actor, his one man show special, Becoming a Man in 127 Easy Steps, which was an Official Selection at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival. We also take a look back on the staircase of Scott’s life.
