Jill Soloway takes us on a patriarchy-toppling emotional and professional journey from straight, divorced, mother of two working on other people's television shows to coming into their own as a nonbinary genderqueer director, show creator, and activist. When Jill's parent came out as transgender, Jill pushed through the male-dominated landscape of Hollywood to create the groundbreaking and award-winning Amazon TV series 'Transparent.' Exploring identity, love, sexuality, and the blurring of boundaries through the dynamics of a complicated and profoundly resonant American family, 'Transparent' gave birth to a new cultural consciousness. While working on the show and exploding mainstream ideas about gender, Jill also began to erase the lines on their own map, coming out as queer and nonbinary.
