She's A Woman from Kiss of the Spider Woman - Mason Alexander Park
From Mason's GreenRoom 42 show "More Than A Woman Or A Man" Luis Alberto Molina has never been played by a trans/latinix person as the role was written on stage until The Olney Theatre produced a version in the fall of 2019, giving a trans actor the chance to finally voice a role commonly coded as homosexual. The song "She's A Woman" is a haunting example of how the role can read if properly told through a non-binary or trans identity.
