“Hi, my name is Tyler, and I will be playing the role of other.” Follow a QBIPOC individual’s journey through the multitudes of what ‘self’ and ‘other’ can be. His skin is too dark. His hair is too long. He wanted to be a magician when he grew up? How do you find a love for yourself when the world casts you in the role of other?
