Ring of Keys Consultancy Directory

The Ring of Keys Consultancy Directory is a resource for producers, casting directors, and theatremakers who are in need of a Gender Consultant or Queer Consultant for their theatrical projects.

As part of our mission to promote the hiring of queer women, trans, and gender non-conforming artists, our consultancy services provide our theatre community with the necessary resources for projects with queer & trans themes, while also advocating for our Members. While no individual could ever represent the entirety of the queer or transgender communities, these artists are adept at supporting producers in creating these projects in an informed and thoughtful way.
