Hey there, I’m JJ Hawkins. And, yes, I'm a queer actor.
Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and now a transplant to Los Angeles, I've ignored all my prejudices against Southern California to bring queer representation to the world of film and television. I'm a non-gender-conforming trans-masculine kid and I'm here to use my voice for those who can't. Let's work together and do some damage.
"JJ Hawkins... is a true sight to behold."
-Amy Harmon, Brimmer Street Theatre Co.
"JJ Hawkins as Cal is a true sight to behold. He is touching, funny, and heartbreaking. He brings extraordinary life into an extraordinary play by Tira Palmquist." -Amy K. Harmon, Brimmer Street Theatre Company
"JJ Hawkins [brings] authenticity and spunk to a Cal who uses humor as a shield and weapon against an intolerant world." - Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA
"Hawkins played the widest variety of characters, and did so with great polarity. She was the hardest to pick out as she switched personas." -Paige Guthrie, Utah Theatre Bloggers Association
"I also enjoyed the dynamic that Hawkins brought... she had to very quickly switch gears from a young boy to Peter from Galilee and she did this very well." -Shaun Davis, Backstage Utah
