From the PFLAG Tulare-Kings Counties Facebook page:
Skyler Cooper is a dynamic, talented, and inspirational award-winning artist, who has been acting in film and theater for fourteen years. Cooper is an influential transgender pioneer in the arts and has received critical acclaim for his gender-bending title role in live performances of Othello. Having appeared in the films Elena Undone, The Owls, and The Insomniacs, and television on RuPaul’s Drag U, Skyler was recently voted one of Autostraddle’s 100 LGBTQ People You Should Know. Hero Mars marks Cooper’s directorial debut; he also wrote, produced, and starred in this beautifully cinematic and thought-provoking award-winning short film. Currently Cooper is in development of his next film, Worthy of Survival. The Gulf War veteran says: “My overall life experience has aided in my ability to relate to many different people as an actor, producer, and director. Today I see my experiences as stories yet to be told, stories that I hope will transform to inspirational guidelines for life.”
