Part-book reading, part feminist revival party, ‘Transparent’ creator Jill Soloway was in Seattle this past Tuesday, October 23 at Temple De Hirsch Sinai. The event was co-presented by Town Hall Seattle and Three Dollar Bill Cinema and lasted about 90 minutes.
Soloway wasn’t alone. She was joined by her rumored girlfriend, award-winning Australian comedian, Hannah Gadsby, as well as award-winning author Morgan Parker and Portland-native writer, Nicole J. Georges.
It wouldn’t be a feminist rally, without music, and that was furnished by Soloway’s comedian/musician sister, Faith, on keyboard. Together they explored Soloway’s evolution from straight, married mother of two to identifying as queer and nonbinary. They offered unbridled insight and a rare front seat to the inner workings of the #MeToo movement and its impact. Soloway, Gadsby, and Parker called us together to ruminate on an entire generation’s thoughtful and revolutionary ideas about gender, inclusion, desire, and consent.
