Indya Moore, a star on the FX hit series POSE, spoke with sportscaster Mike Hill on the red carpet of the 2018 EBONY Power 100 gala last November about the importance of the LGBTQ-centered show.

“[POSE] brought people around the truth that we’re people just like everyone else,” the trans actress said. “I think we’ve gotten so far down this dark hole that colonialism put us all in that gender variant people don’t exist.”

Moore explained how early tribes acknowledged and welcomed people outside of the gender binary, which is the classification of sex and gender into two distinct, opposite and disconnected forms of masculine and feminine.

When it comes to the ill-treatment of trans people, she wishes that individuals would stop trying to dictate how others live based on what is right in their own life.
