As a modern dance choreographer and as a transgender person, Sean Dorsey felt irresistibly drawn to San Francisco with its history of trans and queer resistance and culture. But the city he moved to in the early 2000s was not the city he had envisioned. He discovered he was the only openly trans modern dancer, and no one was putting trans artists on stage. Dorsey spent the next two decades championing trans and queer performing arts in the city. Part of the "If Cities Could Dance" series.
