Futaba Shioda was raised in a quiet suburb outside of Boston as a child of immigrants and a trans kid without the vocabulary to know it. They saw a production of Peter Pan and thought, "Maybe I can be whatever I want to be..."
Since graduating from NYU Tisch School of the Art's New Studio on Broadway, they have become an advocate for visibility in the arts and for intersectionality between marginalized communities. They are a musical, stage, and film actor and a proud member of Actors' Equity Association.
Futaba identifies as a trans non binary boy and relishes in the complexities of being a queer actor of color.
