Mikki Gillette is excited to join the board of Fuse Theatre. She is a trans woman playwright living in Portland, OR. Her new play American Girl is in development through Artist's Rep Theatre's Workbench program, as well as Artist's Rep Theatre's Mercury Company program.
Mikki is part of Profile Theatre's 2020 LGBTQIA+ Community Profile Cohort. Her full length shows The Queers, They, Them, Their, Mimetic Desire and No More Candy depict the trans experience in all its juicy, dramatic richness, and have enjoyed readings at the Portland Playhouse, defunkt theatre, the Funhouse Lounge, Post5 Theatre and the Shoebox, among other venues. Her work has been featured multiple times at the OUTwright Festival.
Mikki works as a fundraiser for Basic Rights Oregon, the state's LGBTQ policy and advocacy organization, and she was named a 2020 Queer Hero by GLAPN Northwest. Learn more at: mikkigillette.com.
