My Story

Neil Klein (he/him) is a composer, instrumentalist, and playwright. His original musical “Archie’s Weird Parody” played 3 weeks Off-Broadway at Theatre Row in January 2023. He was the music director. He has also written musicals such as “In My Head I’m 21” (Excerpts from Studio Recording is available for streaming) about a trans teen seeing prophetic visions; and “Playing Dead” which workshopped at Berklee College of Music in April 2023, produced by SuperHuman Arts. "Playing Dead" is about faking your death: the classiest escape around. He wrote the incidental music for Smith St Stage’s feminist “Measure for Measure” in Fall 2022, and also music directed. Additionally, Klein Musicals, LLC has started hosting readings of new work at Neil’s apartment. The first one was his own play, THE FTM BOOK CLUB. Neil is the founder and creative director of Klein Musicals, LLC. He believes in the weird art. Find him @neilrklein or

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.

Trans Man

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.
