Working the Scene in Rainbow is a live virtual scene-reading session, featuring works by 2SLGBTQIA+ Ontario-based scriptwriters.

Working the Scene in Rainbow is a place for 2SLGBTQIA+ writers to hear their work read aloud by 2SLGBTQIA+ professional actors and an opportunity to network with an audience of industry members. Actor/readers will be cast from within the ACTRA Toronto membership. The event is open to industry partners, friends and all ACTRA members in good standing.

If you are an Industry Partner (producer, director, casting director, literary agent, etc.), Working the Scene in Rainbow is a great opportunity to discover the ACTRA Toronto actor you need for your next project.

About outACTRAto

The outACTRAto Committee is dedicated to raising awareness about queer performers, our stories and our place in the industry and society. We value diversity and equality and we aim to be recognized, supported and valued as queer performers. We aspire to educate and inform our industry about realistic queer representation on screen as we seek a more accurate and balanced reflection of our rich and multifaceted community. We denounce and will work to end harassment and stereotyping of any kind. We will work to achieve true-to-life queer onscreen visibility of our culture and our stories, and to realize change in our industry.

About Working the Scene in Rainbow:

Working the Scene in Rainbow builds on the work of writer/artists Jessica Meya and Louis Taylor and their original project showcasing the work of BIPOC creators, Working the Scene in Colour.

Many thanks to Louis, Jessica and to the ACTRA Toronto Diversity and Inclusion Committee for sharing the Working the Scene in Colour template, their work and their valuable time with us.
