Art has the power to change history not merely record it. 

 

I am passionate about work that challenges audiences, shifts paradigms, and serves to increase empathy in our culture. 

 

I am working to create a career that makes space for trans actors and patrons within traditionally cis-stories and environments. As well as work that emphasizes the humanity and strength in trans people as individuals and as a community. Let us be the heroes of our own stories. 

REEL

"Em Grosland, as both a knife-wielding Golden One and a bespectacled emissary to Pandora, is a delightfully animated pixie." - New York Times
"Em Grosland is striking as a babygay rocking an alternative lifestyle haircut and queer skinny jeans" - Autostraddle

UKECOVER

"Em Grosland  is also delightful...an absolute joy to watch in motion. They may be small, but they and their voice are huge in action, and their enthusiasm is infectious." BroadwayWorld.com
