By unearthing the stories of gender-variant people in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, Toscano’s one-person play deepens well-known (and lesser-known) Bible stories and presents an array of Bible characters with an array of genders.

Created and Performed by Peterson Toscano

In his one-person play, “Transfigurations: Transgressing Gender in the Bible”, theatrical performance activist Peterson Toscano draws on inspiration from interviews with transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, and weaves their experiences into the stories of transgender and gender-variant people from the Hebrew and Christian scriptures. Hilarious and moving, Toscano’s one-person show deepens well-known (and lesser-known) Bible stories as he presents an array of characters with an array of genders.

Through his one-person comedies and lively lectures, Peterson Toscano has delighted audiences throughout North America, Europe, and Africa as he takes on social justice concerns. He has shaken up Bible academics and received high praise for his ground-breaking, genre-bending, gender-blending Bible scholarship. His plays and talks humorously explore the serious topics of LGBTQ issues, sexism, racism, violence, gender, and climate change.
