Artist Spotlight: Patti Harrison

Patti Harrison is a comedian and actress who uses her talent as a creative outlet or escape from the lens of being transgender to be viewed as simply, a person.

Patti Harrison believes it is important for marginalized people to have opportunity and see representation in the creative industries which is why she is comfortable playing roles outside of her societal box. Her first starring role in the film “Together Together,” was an example of this as she played a pregnant woman. She has had other roles in TV shows and films. Patti says she identifies as being a comedian and a human being before really identifying as anything else. She has left her life open-ended because she never imagined herself being a writer or actress but has accepted those roles in full capacities.
