Artistic Director Sean Dorsey is profiled in this beautiful THEM feature article: “Over the past two decades, Sean Dorsey has cemented his legacy as a visionary trailblazer in the world of dance.”
“Dance has the power to heal, to liberate, and to transform culture,” says Dorsey in the article.
Dorsey also shares, “Back in 2002 [before Fresh Meat Productions], nobody would put transgender and gender-nonconforming artists on stage. We were always relegated to perform in bars or the noisy corners of cafes. I brought together a group of artists and activists to put on the first Fresh Meat Festival of trans and queer performance, and the community’s response led us to transform into a year-round arts organization. I’m overall just so proud and in awe of [what we’ve accomplished]. We have supported more than 500 trans/gnc/queer artists and put more than $1 million directly into their hands.”
