Scott Turner Schofield

Considered one of his generation’s trailblazers in the movement for transgender liberation—openly trans since 2000—Scott has used his lived experience and intersectional analysis (as a non-binary trans person who grew up part of an interracial family in the South) to change the nondiscrimination policies of several major universities, coach conservative CEOs at Fortune 500 companies to trans sensitivity in the workplace, and teach youth tools for the self-esteem that living an authentic LGBTQ life requires.
As a professional storyteller, OUT Magazine calls Scott a “trans influencer of Hollywood.” He was the first openly trans actor in Daytime television with a recurring role on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, and the star of 1920s period film The Conductor. His one man show, Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps (commissioned by the National Performance Network and Princess Grace Foundation), is now a groundbreaking interactive film/podcast/book. His first book, Two Truths and a Lie (HomoFactus Press), was a Finalist for 2 Lambda Literary Awards. Most recently he worked as the Trans Consultant for HBO’s EUPHORIA; the role he helped create has been called “TV’s most interesting trans character” (Daily Beast) and “the future of TV” (Marie Claire).
