Originally from Cibolo, TX, Katryna Marttala is a NYC-based singer, actor and mover (on a good day). They graduated from The Institute For American Musical Theatre in 2018. Katryna spent 3 years as the Associate Producer for long-running Cabaret staple, Broadway Sessions. They are a proud member of Ring Of Keys, an artist service organization that fosters community and visibility for musical theatre artists- onstage and off- who self-identify as queer women, transgender, and gender nonconforming artists. In addition to her work in performance & production, Katryna is a dedicated educator and spends most of her days having her heart stolen by a rambunctious group of preschoolers. @katrynamarttala
iSexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.
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.
