Last night the living legend #CicelyTyson received an honorary Oscar. 45 years ago she was nominated for a Best Actress in a leading role Oscar for the film "Sounder." Interestingly Diana Ross was also nominated that year for Best Actress. It was only the 2nd and 3rd time black women had been so recognized. Liza Minelli won that year for her iconic performance in Cabaret. In 1955 Dorothy Dandridge became the first black woman nominated for a best Actress in a leading role Oscar. In 1940 Hattie McDaniel won a supporting actress Oscar for "Gone With The Wind," the first black actress so honored. Halle Berry is still the only black woman to win a best Actress Oscar. Only 6 other black women have won supporting actress Oscars: Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Hudson, Mo'nique, Octavia Spencer, Lupita N'ango, Viola Davis. Oprah Winfrey received an honorary Oscsr in 2011 for her Humanitarian work. We love you Ms. Tyson and owe you so very much. Thank you and congratulations! #blackexcellence #blackgirlmagic #oscars

We have so much to learn from black women in general and particularly black women of this generation and before. This connected to me deeply today because with race I knew it was everyone else's problem growing up but I didn't know that about gender. I thought I was some how defective and wrong because I was treated as less than because I was so feminine growing up. I would add that the structural nature of racism, sexism, transphobia, ableism etc becomes the problem of those oppressed by these systems. But I think what #DiahannCarroll is saying here is that they can oppress or colonize you in the world but in the face of that your spirit need not be colonized. You mustn't feel less than because of someone else's problem. #blackexcellence #blackgirlmagic #legend #Icon

This moment brought unexpected tears to my eyes this morning. I think it's in part because I am still raw from seeing #AmericanSon last night. But I think it's also because regardless of the results of the election on Tuesday #StaceyAbrams' candidacy in so many ways is the dream realized. That seems so clear to me watching #MyrlieEvers endorsement of Abrams on #AMJoy this morning. The fight that is continuing to be waged for #VotingRights in Georgia exemplified in Abrams' candidacy and all over this nation split screen with the living history of that fight in Mrs. Evers feels like God to me. As problematic as it is that we must continue to fight for voting rights in 2018, Stacey Abrams candidacy and those who have stumped for her (particularly this week), #BarackObama, #EricHolder, #JohnLewis and #OprahWinfrey represent the best of our nation and who we can be. #Excellence, #Love #Empathy #Hope #Possibility #Healing. We can heal. We can #vote

I was a teary mess after seeing #AmericanSon tonight on Broadway but my makeup done by @theladydeja at 11am held up beautifully through the tears...... This play is a must see. @kerrywashington you are a national treasure. You, @stevepasquale, Jeremy and Eugene made me feel things I haven't allowed myself to feel because I have feared it would be too much. It is, indeed, too much. But I was reminded tonight you gotta feel it to heal it. Thanks for the healing. Go see this play.

@Regran_ed from @selenisleyvaofficial - #latinaequalpay #latina workers on average make only 53 cents for every $1 a man is paid . The gap has widened since last year and for some it’s even worse. This is an injustice and there is still so much to do for Latinas to be treated equally.

I love you my sister. @peppermint247 #TransIsBeautiful @Regran_ed from @peppermint247 - I'm feeling very vulnerable making this Post but it's important. Today marks a special day, as we have reached DAY 7 of my #7DaysofAction plan! To me, this day was actually the simplest and yet most difficult thing to do, as this is a call for both love of self, and love for others in the #trans and #gnc community. As a six-foot tall black #transgender woman, I was plagued for years by my own fear and self-doubt. I fell under the belief that I was too tall, my hands were too large, my voice was too deep etc.  I felt I'd not only never be deemed attractive, but never be passable as a woman with the body and blackness I was born into. Historically, the test of a trans woman was always how well she could 'pass', or how undetectable she could be - I was aware that just by virtue of being who I was and in the body I was born I would never have that ability. Some do, Many don't.  This is why I never felt comfortable around other groups trans women. Even to this day, I feel I don't necessarily fit in with other trans women because of my love, history and connection to the art of drag - my stature makes me stick out like a sore thumb. So, with the platform I was given I'm committed to being as vocal/visible as possible to make this journey more welcoming for the younger versions of ourselves who have yet to travel it. Unfortunately, I've seen my fair share of young trans internet personalities using their platform to poke fun at #genderqueer and #gendernonconforming folks and  irresponsibly mis-advise fans to just 'blend in'. We all have a story. We all have history. We all have reasons for doing what we've done. But, I'm hoping that we can eventually find a stronger bond within the trans and gender-nonconforming communities. #transisbeautiful #transrightsarehumanrights #transqueen #misspeppermint #transallyship - #regrann

When I get to travel and meet everyday Americans and see how they stand up for themselves and each other, how they love each other it makes me believe that anything is possible. That kind of love will set us free. Early voting has begun in many states including Massachusetts. Bay Staters you can send a message to the rest of this country. By voting #YesOn3 you can stand up for trans rights, for the humanity of trans people and reclaim the humanity of America. We can choose love not fear when we vote. We can choose love and not fear today. #vote #YesOn3MA #WeWontBeErased #transrightsarehumanrights #TransIsBeautiful

We must not give up the fight. But in the face of this affront on my existence and the existence of my community I choose love not fear. I choose love not fear. I choose love not fear. We exist and always have. .......... In indigenous cultures all over the world gender existed beyond the binary and folks who we would call trans today held sacred places in those cultures.  Western colonialism drove those trans folks to the margins but we have always been here.  Marginalizing trans folks is another Example of the brutality of colonialism. ......... This latest administration effort to legislate trans folks out of existence is yet another example of why the fight for gender equity must be intersectional and necessarily must include trans folks. Trans folks need everyone to stand with  us in this fight, to let our government know this is not who we are. .......... We need the citizens of Massachusetts to #VoteYesOn3 Nov. 6 to send a strong message that you value the lives of your trans friends, family and neighbors. ........... Trans people have been under attack by this administration from day 1 and in state legislatures for years now. Let's join together America and assert #TransRightsAreHumanRights. #TransIsBeautiful

#fbf 2009 shooting our short lived #VH1 makeover show "Transform Me." So for this episode that we shot in West Virgina, our makeover subject had a fear of heights. So we thought to help her get over that we should have her rappel off a cliff which is something all her friends did and she was afraid to do. I thought it would be fabulous to do it with her in a bodysuit, of course, because I am afraid of heights too. This is what I wore. I wanted to do it in heels but they said that wasn't safe. Thank God!! #flashbackfriday #TransIsBeautiful !
