“I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act. It is an act that can be met with hostility, exclusion, and violence. It can also lead to love, understanding, transcendence, and community." - Janet Mock 

Trans Voices Cabaret returns to the Duplex for its ninth show in honor of Black History Month. From the blues of Gladys Bentley to the revolution of Marsha P. Johnson to the realness of Janet Mock, the history of Black trans people in this country is deeply felt and constantly disregarded. A Revolutionary Act seeks to remember, uplift, and memorialize those lost and living. #BlackTransLivesMatter  

Ianne Fields Stewart (pronouns: they/them/their)  is a black, queer, and transfeminine New York-based storyteller working at the intersection of theatre and activism.  A native of Birmingham, AL, their work centers in creating radical stories that shift social narratives around the lives and experiences of marginalized people. As a performer, Ianne has worked consistently in productions at NYC venues such as Manhattan Rep, NYC Fringe Festival ’16, Shapiro Theatre, and more. In the spring of 2017, Ianne performed an excerpt of their one-person show, On the Train to Nowhere in Particular, at the legendary Joe's Pub. Ianne can also be seen on Buzzfeed LGBT, the You Had Me at Black podcast, the #Safewordsociety podcast, and the Is it Transphobic Podcast. When they're not in the theatre or studio, Ianne serves on the council of the group @Salon which is a monthly discussion group that invites thought-leaders to introduce LGBTQ-centered topics through personal narrative. One of Ianne's most transformative experiences occurred in the summer of 2017 when they were selected out of over 500 applicants to be one of the 15 US Fellows for Humanity in Action's 2017 John Lewis Fellowship. For the month of July, Ianne shared space with and learned from various historic and current civil rights leaders in Atlanta, GA in order to better understand the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement and develop strategies for implementing effective change in contemporary political and social movements.
