Tyler DiChiara is finally living out this moment as he takes audiences on a new journey through Gotham as Cullen Row in Gotham Knights.
Which is a long way from where he first got a taste of acting in a high school production of Cinderella with a trans princess and DiChiara playing the prince. “My friend in high school, who was also trans, she and I were the only trans kids in our high school, so we bonded quite well.
Her name was Tyler, too, and she made this little off off Broadway play about a Cinderella story, but with a trans woman as Cinderella,” said DiChiara. “I was playing the prince and it was my first ever, cisgendered male role, if you will.
It was so much fun because it was just a bunch of kids getting together and doing something that we really all felt confident on.
