Season 5 Episode 4 | 9m 49s | Video has closed captioning.

Transgender modern dancer Sean Dorsey was irresistibly drawn to San Francisco with its history of trans and queer culture. But when he moved here in the early 2000s, he discovered he was the only openly trans modern dancer. Ever since, he’s championed trans and queer artists with The Fresh Meat Festival and the touring dance company he founded. Watch excerpts from “The Lost Art of Dreaming.”
