Jill Soloway wants to start a revolution. Her new production company, Topple, was founded with the guiding principle of giving voices to those underrepresented in an industry dominated by cisgender, straight, white men. Topple isn’t just a name—it’s a mission statement, and that mission is toppling the global patriarchy. Jill had been working in film and television for 15 years when her own parent came out as trans, inspiring her to create the show Transparent for Amazon. It has been a landmark show for transgender representation both on the screen and in the real world. Through the transfirmative action hiring program she has reinvented hiring practices of trans artists throughout the industry.
