Ezra Tozian

Non-binary, SWANA, COVID-conscious performer and advocate.

Ezra Tozian (they/them) is a non-binary, SWANA, COVID-conscious performer and advocate. They were instrumental in the D.C. awards show, the Helen Hayes Awards, becoming gender-inclusive (and just in time for multiple non-binary performers to win their awards!). They have consulted with institutions such as TCG, theatreWashington, and various independent theatres on trans and COVID related issues through a community-focused and trauma-informed lens. Most recently, they published A New Conscious-ness: a response to industry-wide resistance to providing COVID protections for its workers and how that decision results in systemic EDIA failures.
