Hollywood stars are showing their support for the transgender community.
As part of Transgender Day of Visibility on March 31, celebrities paused to honor the accomplishments of transgender and gender nonconforming people, while also raising awareness of the work that still needs to be done to achieve trans justice.
To Laverne CoxThis day reminds us that although “trans magic” is true, we need more friends to help people be their best selves.
She wrote an Instagram post, “I am reminded that transgender and nonbinary persons are called and anointed for a special purpose here on earth.” It is also important to remember that as more individuals declare they are living as their authentic selves and less of us feel relegated back to society’s margins or backpages, it becomes harder for people to live in those places.
