Our Lady J – Transparent Allows Trans Community To Finally Tell Their Stories
Our Lady J, who is a writer for the Amazon Prime show Transparent, recently appeared at the Amazon Prime Video Presents Transparent Official Emmy FYC Event And Special Screening.
While there, she talked about the importance of the show, especially for the trans community.
“Well I think the thing that sorts it out from everything else that’s being made is that Jill Soloway involves the trans community in the show,” she shared. “And so the trans community is able to- we’re finally able to tell our own stories.”
“The narrative that’s coming from trans people on the show is the most authentic it can be,” she later adds.
I’m a huge supporter of equality, rights for all, and feel art is most powerful when it’s authentic. For all of these reasons, I applaud Transparent for the stories it’s sharing, and wish them many more seasons of success.
