SAG isn't getting rid of gender-specific categories anytime soon https://t.co/isHn5JzvNd— Variety (@Variety) June 22, 2020
non-binary actor Asia Kate (Billions) wrore an open letter to the Screen Actors Guild asking them to abolish gender-specific categories.
SAG said no.
The suggestion to go to one category raises significant concerns in terms of gender parity as well as racial and ethnic diversity. However, this is a larger conversation we are continuing to explore, and we’ll be reaching out to you [Asia Kate] for a discussion with the SAG Awards.
