Peterson Toscano has shaken up Bible academics and received high praise for his ground-breaking, genre-bending, gender blending Bible scholarship. By unearthing the stories of gender-variant people in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, Toscano’s one-person play deepens well-known (and lesser-known) Bible stories and presents an array of Bible characters with an array of genders.

Peterson Toscano has the rare gift of being able to simultaneously open the pages of Scripture and the minds of his audience, enriching both by his creative use of humour and drama, laughter and tears, challenges and uplifts. His performances are not to be missed!

Whether it's a workshop or one of his performance pieces, Peterson's presentations are always filled with humor and love, and more sensitivity to the experiences of transgender people than any non-trans person that I know.

Peterson Toscano can take an audience from belly laughs one moment to arresting, reverent silence the next. His honesty, his rawness, speaks to his talent, and to his courage in giving so much of his heart to his audience. A play by Peterson is a transcendent, community building experience.
