Hi everybody! Today, as part of the Legendary Leaders campaign, I have the distinct honor of amplifying the divinely talented Angelica Ross (@angelicaross ). From "Her Story" (on Youtube - a must watch, btw) to @poseonfx to AHS 1984 and Claws, she gives the kind of compelling performance that makes it impossible to look away. But as if that weren’t enough, she’s also an entrepreneur, author, activist, philanthropist, coder, dog mom…all the things. First of all, watch and consume her work. Second of all, follow her. Third of all, please join me in donating to @transtechsocial , a non-profit that she started that is an online and offline community resource for LGBTQ & trans professionals and job-seekers. Thank you to @brandonkgood for involving me, and thank you to @hbranana for this awesome art. #LegendaryLeaders #BlackTransLivesMatter
Also, I got to wear really pretty dresses that I loved to both the Oscars themselves and the Vanity Fair party afterwards. They both made me feel as special as the events I was attending, and I have @cristinaehrlich to thank for pulling it all together - especially because she had to do so while I was shooting every day out of the country. And a huge shout-out to @peterluxhair and @ninapark for making my face and hair look presentable to the greater public! Always grateful for that...I should start posting before and after pics. They’re magicians. ❤️
Hello again! Today, I wanted to pass along some resources that I have been finding helpful for doing the quieter, eternal work of understanding and combatting white supremacy in our society and in ourselves. Everything else we do (like #8CantWait from @CampaignZero , which everyone should please participate in) will only go so far if we’re unable to take the conscious steps to turn our nation into an anti-racist one. I have linked in my bio to a great list of resources. And look in my stories soon for some specific recommendations ❤️
Hi there, everybody. @CampaignZero has launched an initiative - #8CantWait - and I really want to make sure everyone knows about this other concrete way to help (in addition to all the other work). This is about the policies that each of our nearly 18,000 police departments has and holds their officers to. Simply implementing these 8 use of force policies could reduce police violence up to 72% in those departments. That’s 72%. That’s too impactful to not act on - and the beautiful thing is that these policies could be implemented TODAY if your mayor/police chief feels enough pressure. We need to flood their offices across the country with emails and phone calls that issue clear demands that these policies be enacted immediately. We cannot wait - too much is at stake. Go to 8cantwait.org to get all the information about how to do this for your city - and for those skeptics out there, you can see all the data there for yourselves.
I haven’t posted on Instagram since May, so my New Years resolution was to post more. Four days in, zero posts, and it’s clearly going GREAT. I’m panicking. So, just to rip off the bandaid, here’s a photo of me right now at an airport restaurant. If you can’t tell from the sunglasses, it’s a *very* glamorous spot. Happy 2019, everybody!
Just a casual stroll with Dr. Strange. I’ve only seen the first episode (which is the only episode I’m in), but I already know that I am very fortunate to have been part of this show. It was so much fun to shoot, and Benedict’s performance is stunning. Watch tonight to see what I might have looked like as a young woman in the 80s. #shoulderpads
Hi from the last day of my 20s! I am sorry I’ve been so MIA - I’ve been working hard on @unfortunate and have not been allowed to post anything about it, but I just wanted to send my love and promise that one of my resolutions for this year is to check in with you all more often. #ThisIsAlmost30 ❤️❤️ ps: Moxie says hi
Smiling through some very @unfortunate news... Look who's joining #ASOUE for Seasons 2 & 3! So happy I can finally tell you guys reason #2 I've been so busy. It's been so much fun these past few months, and I can't wait for you guys to see it. I'll be bugging these two bad-asses for another couple of months of Lemony Snicket-y fun 👁
