Hair, makeup, and wig designer J Jared Janas found himself trailblazing from an early age. The first of his family to be born in the United States, he found an unlikely path to the world of hair and makeup in spite of social and economic challenges that the exclusive world of theatre can often prove too far a reach.

Come As You Are explores the intersection of the careers of arts professionals and their identities across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. In each episode, costume designer, trans man, and host Erik Teague discusses the complex narratives, unique challenges, and beautiful stories of a guest’s journey through their discipline and their identity.
