Bio

Rebecca Kling is a transgender artist and educator who explores gender and identity through solo performance pieces and educational workshops. Her multidisciplinary performances incorporate conversational storytelling, personal narrative, humor, and more. Kling takes the position that sharing accessible queer narrative with a wide audience is a form of activism, and that understanding combats bigotry.

In 2013, Kling was named as part of the inaugural Trans 100, a list celebrating excellence in the transgender community. In 2014, she was named as one of the Guild Literary Complex’s 25 Writer’s to Watch. She has received praise from The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Reader, CitiBeat Cincinnati, Overly Theatrical, and elsewhere. Kling regularly speaks and performs at high schools, universities, and theatre festivals around the country including: the Chicago, Minnesota, Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Cincinnati Fringe Festivals; Northwestern University; Columbia College; Butler University; Smith College; Bucknell University; Texas A&M at Commerce; the College of Charleston; the University of Maine; and the University of Southern California.

Kling’s writing has been published at Jezebel, in Chicago IRL issues 1 through 4, Bodies of Work, the Center for Classic Theatre Review, and elsewhere. Her book, No Gender Left Behind, was released in 2013. For a behind-the-scenes look at her writing process, check out her blog.

A graduate from Northwestern University’s Department of Performance Studies with an Adjunct Major in Animate Arts, Rebecca Kling is also on the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance board of directors and is the Program Manager at TransTech Social Enterprises.
