Even though I had heard of Trace from her work on television, I didn’t realize she is from Dayton, Ohio witch is very close to my hometown of Springfield. 

Not surprisingly, Trace went through more than a few troubling times to arrive where she is today. Including losing a job at Bloomingdale after she was denied using the women’s restroom. 

She underwent successful gender realignment surgery in Thailand and returned to New York to work as a dancer in Manhattan for nearly eight years.

Trace Lysette’s big career breakthrough happened when she landed the role of “Shea”, a transgender yoga teacher on the “Transparent” series.
