I was at @apait_ssg last week and reminded of the remarks I gave at their benefit last year. Its still really hard for me to watch my speeches. But they made me watch this one..lol. I thought there might be something useful here for some of you at this moment. What does optimal well being look like during a pandemic, social distancing and quarantines? How's the kid who lives inside you doing right now? Talk to her. Check in. Give her what she needs. "She" is gender neutral in this usage btw. 😉 ... #OptimalWellBeing #reparentingtheinnerchild #truth #selfcare #love #TransIsBeautiful #grieving #grief

What do you do when you're social distancing? This is what I do. Wash your hands, avoid groups, follow the guidelines of the CDC. Self love is a practice. When we can truly love ourselves then we can love and care for others. 🎶I love me by @ddlovato 🎶 ... #TransIsBeautiful

Thank you @essence for this update and further uplifting Ariyonna and her beautiful support system. Reposted from @essence We sat down with Ariyonna Cotton, her mother Ashanti Cotton, and rapper @LilWaveDaddy.

I was reminded about this in my own life this week. Going it alone is so very seductive and yes self reliance is important. But we need each other. Right now we are reminded how much we are all connected. That should definitely be one of the lessons we take from.this moment. I so want to do it all on my own. I often isolate and many of us are isolating and self quarantining now. But I just got off the phone with a few of my girls. We may not be together right now but we are here for each other. Shout out to my COTS, the women who hold me up. Can we all invite in the energy of love, connection, health, healing and safety into our beings right now. Let that energy permeate our souls and nervous systems expanding our resilience in this moment and give that to each other. ... #quarantine #isolation #connection #belonging #love

Part of the reason I wept so hard when I saw Zaya Wade being applauded and celebrated in my last post is because I saw this post a few days ago on twitter and it broke my heart. And Viola Davis wrote here what I was too overwhelmed to express. bell hooks once wrote loving Blackness is a revolutionary act. Inspired by her words I have said loving transness is a revolutionary act. My trans politics are rooted in intersectional feminist politics taught to me by black women like bell hooks through her books. Teaching stunningly beautiful brown girls like this one to see her profound beauty and worth is our work. Let's get busy. ... Reposted from @violadavis of WORTH of BEAUTY! We are fighting hundreds of years of brutal conditioning of being considered less than. It is sprinkled in our language, behavior, laws, music...etc.. and trickles down to our youth. I'm speaking LIFE into Ariyonna. From a sista who looks a lot like you....you were born worthy therefore you were born beautiful!❤❤ 🎥@lilwavedaddy -

Mood cause @beyonce took home all the awards at the @naacpimageawards tonight as she should have. Order restored! ... Well some order. Please everyone register to vote. Let's fight voter suppression, gerrymandering, the electoral college and let's get money out of politics. We have to reform how our elections are financed to get some semblance of real representative democracy. I believe it's in we the people's best interests to support politicians who support campaign finance reform in both theory and practice. A president, senate and house of representatives who pass and sign HR1 into law I believe would be a good start though the campaign finance section could go a bit further. ....

Reposted from @chellaman The first time I met Laverne Cox, I literally got on one knee. Evidently, this was detailed in the cover interview: Cycling through a number of poses, Man instinctually gets to one knee. Gazing up to Cox, he exultingly extends his arms in her direction, at once bowing to and reveling in her eminence. It’s both corny and endearingly awkward, yet necessarily reverential. After all, he is one of the newest trans actors on the scene.” I owe Laverne and many other queer and disabled role models of color great thanks for the doors they have opened. @lavernecox, The love & care you radiate diminishes hate. _ Words by @rayzhon. Thank you, @pfpicardi and @raquel_willis, for changing the world for the better. Shot by the angel: @camilafalquez! Styled by @yashuasimmons /@julianmack

#ForYourConsideration. Emmy voting begins today. I am so insanely grateful to the @televisionacad members who saw fit to single out my work in @oitnb for a third time with this nomination. Academy members we can make history this year. If you see fit you can make me the first trans person to win an Emmy in an acting category. You can celebrate a show, whose final season is now streaming on @netflix, a show that has changed the televison landscape forever. I love you, my fellow artists. I love you my Orange family I share this nomination with each of you. #OrangeForever #OITNB #TransIsBeautiful

I spoke with @goldderby about the episode of @oitnb for which I am nominated for an Emmy award this year for outstanding guest actress in a drama series. The episode is from the 6th season of Orange. Caputo offers Sophia the chance to publicly tell her story of oppression that she has experienced within the walls of Litchfield. Sophia says, "I'm done trying to be heard. Nobody's listening." In this clip from my interview with Gold Derby I reveal the subtext for me in this moment from Sophia's life. Emmy voting begins today. #fyc #ForYourConsideration. #Emmys

Love this article. Reposted from @the_brianmichael (@get_regrann) - “A generation of trans men were told to just disappear—that is what success meant as a trans person.... In this new moment, I think a lot of people are rethinking that.” One of the things that thrilled him about writing for The L Word was the prospect of seeing trans masculine characters framed as glamorous.” - @thomaspagemcbee This right here spoke to my entire soul and galvanized my commitment to bringing my deepest truths to my part on @sho_thelword This entire piece is full of these kinds of resonant morsels. @press101 has put together one of the best articles on the state of Transgender representation in TV I’ve read and am fortunate to be a part of. Starting with @poseonfx as the new model for #Trans storytelling done right- with Trans lead actors, directors and writers and the undeniable cultural impact of that level of authenticity, Joy Press traces the path of how we’ve come to this point in our representation journey and where we need to go next through the insights of Trans actors, writers and producers who are treading the path, naming the roadblocks and telling industry and those trying to break in how to bypass or obliterate them. @ourladyj @shakeenz @thomaspagemcbee @marjalewisryan @therealalexandrabillings @t.cooper.4 and @tracelysette drop some jewels all throughout this piece and it would behoove you to check the link in the bio or go grab a copy of the September issue of @vanityfair I will say that I would love to get some insights on the experiences and impact of non-binary performers and artists such as @ser_anzoategui and @asiakatedillon have had in TV in the past few years as well. . . . #representationmatters #transisbeautiful #pride #vanityfair #girlslikeus #transmenofinstagram #transmen #transgender #tv #thelword #transparent #posefx #sense8 #theoa #take3talent #jagoassociates - #regrann

@wmag You are still the only transgender person to be nominated for an acting Emmy. What does that feel like? @lavernecox In a year of a show like Pose being nominated in other categories, none of the trans actors from that show have been nominated, so I felt like maybe I’m supposed to talk about that. I don’t know. There’s so much incredible talent there. There’s so much incredible trans talent on television right now in general, so part of me was thinking maybe it’s my job to encourage academy voters to consider that talent as well. The first time I was nominated in 2014 it was historic because I was the first trans person nominated for an acting Emmy. Now, for my third nomination I’m like, maybe the Academy needs to vote for me and we can make more history. [Laughs.] ... Click on the link in my bio for the full interview

For your consideration #Emmy voters. I was on KTLA this morning talking about my 3rd Emmy nomination and trying to grapple with still being the only openly trans person nominated for an acting Emmy. Looking back always helps me. @halleberry is still the only black woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress in the entire history of the Academy Awards. I want to challenge artists, producers, network and studio executives to continue to ask ourselves how do we continue to create space for others to walk through the door once it had been opened? How do we open more doors and break more glass ceilings? We have come so far but there is so much more ground yet to be broken. ... #TransIsBeautiful #oitnb #Emmys #fyc #halleberry #oscars

Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death, people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun." - #regrann

I am so proud to be the first openly trans person to cover @britishvogue following in the footsteps of @valentts 's March 2017 @vogueparis cover and @indyamoore 's @teenvogue cover from earlier this year. ... I assert daily that trans is beautiful. I am so blessed that as an artist my job is to highlight and celebrate everyone's beautiful and imperfect humanity. We must not forget our shared humanity as we interact with each other, implement public policies, vote for elected officials. Even when we disagree we must still acknowledge each other's humanity. We must not continue to allow the tactics of divide and conquer, dehumanization to keep us from each other. Divide and conquer only serves those already in power. ... Policies in my country that seek to dehumanize trans people by making it legal to discriminate against us in homeless shelters, healthcare, and employment (see Aimee Stephens case going to the Supreme Court in October) must not be inacted. The ban against trans folks serving openly in our military must not stand. We need a senate and president that will pass and sign the Equality Act into law. Trans and nonbinary children must be protected. We must end the epidemic of violence against trans people. Trans people existing and thriving is not a threat to nontrans people existing and thriving. Let's not allow scarcity narratives to keep us from each other. We can choose love not fear today. ... Thank you @britishvogue @edward_enninful and HRH The Duchess of Sussex @sussexroyal for this incredible honor. ...

Everyone you must tune into @hbo on Friday to watch @ablackladysketchshow. It's historic and revolutionary and funny as hell. So honored I got to be a small part of this show. Thank you @robinthede.
