About the Author
Tom Léger and Riley MacLeod have been writing together and fostering space for transgender artists for over 10 years. Their plays have been seen at HERE Arts Center, WOW Cafe Theater, Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, and included 9 sold-out episodes of their serial comedy Butch McCloud: Your Friendly Neighborhood Lesbian Superhero which delighted audiences in New York for more than a year. Léger and MacLeod wrote the screenplay for the celebrated short film F. Scott Fitzgerald Slept Here (2007, dir. Jules Rosskam) which EMRO noted was "surprisingly blunt and humorous" and also "quite amazing". The two also co-produced STAGES, the first international transgender theater festival, in New York City in 2003. THE COLLECTION is their first book project.
