Conversations with Terrell Green

Today we’d like to introduce you to Terrell Green.

Hi Terrell, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Born and raised in Philadelphia; developed and trained in NYC; and now working with the collective in LA. I like to say I was born a poet, wrote my first sonnet at 10. Got into theatre through free after school theatre programs and that was it! Theatre and arts education has granted me the opportunities to bring theatre, playwriting, and puppetry techniques as an arts-integrated public health resources. I’ve helped to develop and direct: HIV/AIDS testing programs, STI/HIV prevention, arts integrated literacy and social and emotional development programs that use theatre as its curriculums’ foundation. I am here now working to make arts education a public health equalizing resource for Black queer youth.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
My biggest struggles have been having to combat racism and then being responsible to clean it up, after I point out.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?

A fictional story about the first Black Trans girl group to make it mainstream. They are days out from their first world tour, we watch them deal with racism, transphobia, misogyny, and just the good ole ills of the biz. It’s like if Dreamgirls were a real story with Trans women.

We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
That I am a trained marionette puppeteer, I worked for the NYC government as a puppeteer.
