hit their historic Amphitheater Stage to talk about trans issues and the current events of the time period.
Y'all may have heard about a hit TV show she writes, directs and produces called POSE on FX.
Janet Mock has been making history ever since I had the pleasure of meeting her when I was in New York in 2012 for a GLAAD POC media training.
Some of the things Janet Mock has been recognized for have been TIME naming her to its 100 Most Influential People list, The Hollywood Reporter naming her one of its 2019 “Women in Entertainment Power 100,” Ebony naming her to the Ebony 100 list, Vanity Fair named her on its “New Establishment” list, while the PEN Center USA honored her with an Award of Honor during the 2017 Literary Awards.,
She also became the first Black trans person to sign a deal with a major movie studio when she inked a multiyear deal with Netflix.
I am exceedingly happy to find out that when the 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards happens, she will be honored with an LGBTQ Advocacy Award!
Janet is Black Trans excellence personified, and I'm proud to call her a friend in addition to watching her make moves and still do some amazing things.
And yeah, I'm a huge fan of POSE and can't wait until its third season happens.
