YEG Theatre Stats

About the Stats, Language, and How They’re Collected

#yegtheatrestats is a passion project, and as such may contain errors.

The Language

I’m currently working in a W/M binary with the addition of N (non-binary) to best reflect power dynamics. Best practises evolve, however, so this will change if better terms arise.

All #yegtheatrestats are collected using a combination of visual identity and pronouns used in programs. As this is an imperfect system, I will endeavour to correct errors and address concerns as quickly as possible. Artists will not be classified as non-binary unless they explicitly identify as such in publicly available copy. To reflect this, N fields will be left blank rather than filled with a ‘0’. ​

If you have feedback or corrections, please let me know! 

Special thanks to OUTReels Diversity Education Program for providing feedback and education on the language used.

The Shorthand

The shorthand M, W & N are used to indicate perceived gender identity.

M encompasses man & male

W encompasses woman & female

N encompasses non-binary
