"I passed on the audition originally for 'Pose', which was to audition for Blanca or Elektra, and so between those two characters, I didn't see myself in either of the characters, especially with Blanca, I felt that it was written for a Latina trans woman." -Angelica Ross
The transphobia and misogyny are so obvious. If you were going to nominate anyone else in
#Pose for ANYTHING at all it should’ve been one of these talented legendary women @TheEmmys A show made for AND around transphobia against black women and you decide to nominate the gay man?https://picsoci.com/tweet/1w9YNx4mUx
Yet another reminder that no matter how hard we fight for diversity, we still have a long way to go to reach inclusivity... Pose should’ve been nominated, all of these beautiful black trans women should’ve been nominated because they were the heart of the show!
