Indya Moore, estrela da série Pose, acaba de entrar para a história da moda, sendo a primeira modelo transgênero a estar na capa da revista Elle americana, uma das publicações de moda mais conceituadas do mundo.

A atriz de 24 anos faz o papel da personagem Angel na série Pose, que inclusive, tem o maior elenco trans da história das obras audiovisuais.

Moore está linda na capa usando Louis Vuitton, uma marca que a abraçou não apenas como modelo, mas como embaixadora, fazendo com que ela desfilasse na semana da moda de Paris usando peças da nova coleção da marca.

Esse estrelato, visibilidade e aceitação são um enorme rumo à igualdade, e algo pelo qual Moore tem trabalhado em toda a sua vida e carreira. 

“Não sei me divertir, não sei qual é o meu restaurante favorito”, diz ela. E continua: “Quando estou com pessoas conversando sobre o dia delas, estou olhando e pensando: ‘Do que elas estão falando? Como não estamos falando sobre a desconstrução da supremacia branca agora? Como não estamos tentando salvar as pessoas trans? Eu não sei quem eu sou fora de alguém que está apenas tentando ser livre e encontrar segurança para mim e para os outros LGBTs”, afirmou a maravilhosa à publicação. 

VÍDEO NOVO DO PÕE NA RODA:

Seu trabalho já lhe rendeu mais de 200 mil seguidores no Instagram. Indya Moore, que já viveu em um orfanato até os 14 anos, chegou a morar na rua. Foi enquanto vivia esta dura realidade que ela soube do teste para a série Pose, fez o teste e foi aprovada para a série.

Com uma grande capa de revista de moda no currículo, uma segunda temporada de sua série de televisão por vir e infinitas oportunidades no horizonte, este parece ser só o seu começo. Indya Moore certamente continuará nos ensinando e inspirando por muito tempo ainda.

thank you @ninagarcia for choosing me to be your cover of june. this is an immense honor. im still taking it in. It's extremely overwhelming. I appreciate you for leaning into me, knowing the future i stand for & by covering me for june- acknowledging the way I utilize my platform to uphold those values & this vision. It's so Revolutionary to have someone like be your cover star. Especially as june approaches i'm thinking about the stone wall anniversary and how many black and brown queer people have died so queerness and gender variant/trans experiences can be humanized. We have come so far and I am so thankful that something about me or my community opened your eyes to us in the ways it has that resulted in my feature. There is still more work to do and everyday, and in nearly every conversation I hold I am thinking about ways to access people who are not systemically marginalized to inform them enough so that the burdeon doesn't always fall on marginalized black brown queer and gender variant peoples backs to free ourselves from chains we did not create. We still have a long way to go. Queerness doesn't seem always ok to exist unless it entertaintains the non queer majority- Gender variant and transness doesn't always seem to be okay when it doesn't entertain the non gendervariant /trans majority and black/brownness doesn't seem to be okay when it isn't entertaining the non black and brown majority. This june- I hold a very personal and special, celebratory pride for my intersectional identities and the ways those who don't or may not share those identity experiences take part in celebrating them too.

@Sergio thank you for loaning your most intimate space To us. When they asked me where my safe and favorite place in nyc to do this was i mentioned you. Thank you sergio. @elleusa @ninagarcia Thank you for choosing @alphajada . she made my heart sing my truth for hoursbin a way I could barely feel labor from- something about her made me feel the safest i've felt yet in an interview to be so vulnerable- She listened patiently and with love. With every scene of my life that I shared I saw her in her eyes experience it with me. She accompanied me to the pharmacy after hanging out with me at my fitting for the Paley fest with @iancogneato, went with me to a pharmacy to cop my hormones & then sat with me in a restaurant at like 3 am cus we was both mad hungry and held so much space for my shock of noticing my ex- who I later realized wasn't my ex after all. She was there for me like a friend i knew for years but also like a safe stranger I met and of whom we were getting to know each other. It was a healing interview- and i never thought something like that could be possible, I hope @alphajada & I can still be friends. @zoeygrossman GURL. the way you shot me to life is gagworthy and gagconic. The way you trusted me made me trust you. Our relationship through your camera was so personal and intimate and synergetic.. when I explained to you what my prime lighting was & when I told you i was afraid of my complexion being whited out, you listened intently. You saw me how I see myself, And reflected that in our photos. Thank you for making me feel beautiful and giving me the space to channel that . @makeupvincent & @hoshounkpatin I love you guys so much and am so grateful you flew out to LA for me for this project. You manifested a cunt fish and gag and made it hair and makeup, thank you Both for being so helpful present loving and sincerely dedicated to make me look right.
