My Story

Jack Henry (he/they) is a trans-androgynous, gendersquishy actor, singer, writer, and creator. His current project is High Winds, a play by trans playwright, Sylvan Oswald. This iteration of High Winds has played at 2022's Fusebox Festival in Austin, Texas, as well as Portland, Oregon's 2022 TBA Festival. Open to new festivals! If you would like a magnificent, Trans, Western Fantasia to play at your theater or festival--feel free to reach out, and Jack will put you in touch with the right people. Jack has acted and performed in several theaters around the Philadelphia area, including the Wilma Theater, Arden Theatre Company, Interact Theatre Company, and Azuka Theatre. Jack has recently discovered he is neurodivergent, and that his brain thinks and processes things differently, and that different is good. He has been practicing how to shift and fit his creative processes through this new lens. Jack is currently making a shift into writing and acting in more film, and can be seen in FSU grad’s Sheree Chen’s Thesis film, In the Middle of Walt Whitman. Jack brings to spaces a nuance, poise, and gameness, as well as an utter silliness. They strive to create pieces and performances that spark emotional connections, and help us feel like perhaps we are not alone on earth. Jack is also a healer, and has been working on how to integrate his energetic, healing practices into his practice, and is curious about adding new magics to art, overall.

Sexual Orientation
iSexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.


Gender Identity
iOne’s internal, deeply held sense of gender. Some people identify completely with the gender they were assigned at birth (usually male or female), while others may identify with only a part of that gender, or not at all. Some people identify with another gender entirely. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others.


iRacial identity is the qualitative meaning one ascribes to one’s racial group, whereas ethnic identity is a concept that refers to one’s sense of self as a member of an ethnic group. At their core, both constructs reflect an individual’s sense of self as a member of a group; however, racial identity integrates the impact of race and related factors, while ethnic identity is focused on ethnic and cultural factors. We celebrate our Keys’ intersectionality and understand that creating one’s racial/ethnic identity is a fluid and nonlinear process that varies for every person. Many folks will identify with more than one background while others will identify with a single group more broadly.
