My favorite #bellhooks quote from her book Yearning

Language is also a place of struggle. I was just a girl coming slowly into womanhood when I read Adrienne Rich's words. 'This is the oppressor's language yet I need it to talk to you.' ..Language is also a place of struggle... We are wedded to language, have our being in words. Language is also a place of struggle. Dare I speak to oppressed and oppressor in the same voice. Dare I speak to you in a language that will move beyond the boundaries of domination, a language that will not bind you, fence you in or hold you. Language is also a place of struggle. The oppressed struggle in language to recover ourselves, to reconcile, to reunite to renew. Our words are not without meaning. They are an action, a resistance.  Language is also a place of struggle.

With #TrudieStyler who directed @freakshowmovie which screened tonight for the closing of #Outfest. I am so proud to be in this film. Thank you Trudie!

I just left the #Outfest screening of @freakshowmovie. I am so honored to be a part of a film that tells the triumphant story of a gender queer high school kid. I wiped tears from my eyes deeply moved and laughed uproariously from the tour de force performance of #AlexLawther. What a brilliant young talent. Shout out to the @ianmichaelnelson95 who delivered a layered empathic performance and @abbienormal9 @annasophiarobb and our entire cast and crew especially our fearless leader, our director #TrudieStyler. I hope everyone will get to see this film when it comes to a theater near you. Stay tuned for that information. #FreakShowMovie #TransIsBeautiful

#throwbackthursday last January posing with Chiffon. What a day! I celebrated my Emmy nomination by going to acting class, a new class I started here in Los Angeles. It's the best thing I could have done for myself. God help me continue to surrender to the work and not my ego. Shout out to my amazing acting teachers particularly @bradcalcaterra who coached me for my now Emmy nominated episode of #oitb. I love you Brad! Another shout out to @susanbatsonstudio who taught me so much including the power and potential of the art form of acting to change the world when we do the work. #TransIsBeautiful #Emmys.

I am still in shock and so much joy. I received my 2nd #EmmyNomination this morning. This means so much to me. My own personal struggles have been real and many.
Those of other trans women are real and many particularly those who are incarcerated and suffering abuse in correctional facilities and solitary confinement like my character Sophia did in this now Emmy nominated episode.#JusticeforEryricka.
Congratulations to all my fellow nominees. Special shout outs to my #OITNB
Castmates @uzoaduba and @whododatlikedat who is celebrating her first and long overdue nomination for #handmaidstale. So proud of you both. Love you all. Can you believe I am nominated in the same category as #CicelyTyson!!. Holy crap! I am going to go cry again.#Emmys. #TransIsBeautiful

God I love this woman @Regrann from @lovebscott Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama - #regrann
