With Pride being born out of protest sparked by Black trans women, what encouragement would you like to give fans and family alike to get involved this Pride month?
I just want to encourage people to regularly support Black trans women, financially, artistically, professionally—every way! And not just during Pride month. During every month.
Can you remember the first time you saw yourself reflected in entertainment in a way that filled you with pride? If so, what was it? And if you’re still waiting, what is it that you’re hoping to see?
The first time I saw a trans actor on stage was in a play in Chicago in 2013 during Pride month. That really changed me and did kind of fill me with some Pride, and it also encouraged me to keep doing what I love.

But I’m still waiting to see a lot of things. I’ve said this many times, but I really just want trans people to have all the access to roles that cis people have. It’s really tiring—and boring—that [that] isn’t the case.
You are given the keys to your industry. What’s the first thing you do to make it a more inclusive environment for everyone?
I would give the keys/pass the mic to
Janet Mock, Laverne Cox, Tourmaline, Angelica Ross, Ava DuVernay, Hanelle Culpepper
, and
, and support and be an ally to their work.
