Tell Me Why’s lead character is voiced by a transgender male

Tell Me Why is an upcoming narrative adventure from developer DONTNOD which features a lead transgender male protagonist that’s voiced by a transgender male.

August Black speaks of his role as Tyler Ronan with VG24/7 and we've detailed it for you below.

It’s such an important story. The transgender narrative is not a story a lot of people are exposed to and this game will give a massive platform to it
I’m so excited for people to get to know these characters! Tyler has so much to offer and his experience as a trans man is just a part of it. Tyler is amazing because he is tangible. The writers have created such a beautiful three-dimensional character. Having a video game character that might look like you is great, but more importantly having a character who feels like you do gives young trans kids a connection they might not have anywhere else.
Tyler's battle with acceptance in his personal relationships and community is something a lot of the LGBT+ community goes through and it shapes how you approach life and I am grateful to be able to relive these life moments through Tyler in a lot of ways.
Tell Me Why is planned for a mid-2020 release with three episodes across Xbox One and Windows PC.
