#2.8 Reimagining the world with Javier Rivera DeBruin

In This Episode

Wrap up Pride month with playwright and impact producer, Javier Rivera DeBruin, and hosts Meghan and Holly!

Learn what Javi does as an Impact Producer for documentaries like DISCLOSURE and TRANS IN TRUMPLAND, practices that theatre could adapt from documentaries, and the rewards of contributing to the counter narratives to the recent attacks against trans youth.
