A reminder that on US broadcast network television tonight you can watch not one, but TWO dramas featuring black transgender woman characters – and this is mightily important – portrayed by black transgender actresses!
First at 9 pm ET/PT (or 8 pm CT/HT) on FOX-TV, it’s Lee Daniels’ STAR, co-starring Amiyah Scott (The Real Housewives Of Atlanta) as Cotton, the daughter of Carlotta (a shoutout to the famous Aussie showgirl?) Brown, who’s played by Queen Latifah. STAR also features “Miss Lawrence” Washington (Fashion Queens, Empire) as receptionist Miss Bruce (reportedly in transface).
Then switch over to CBS-TV at 10 pm ET/PT for the premier episode of the legal drama Doubt, starring Laverne Cox (#Metallica who?) as Harvard-educated lawyer Cameron Wirth. This show was created and is executive-produced by Tony Phelan and Joan Rater (Grey’s Anatomy), parents to trans actor Tom Phelan (@tomphelan9) (The Fosters); one of its writers is novelist Imogen Binnie (@boredangry). And slated as guest stars are Angelica Ross (@missrosscreative), Jen Richards (@smartassjen) and Alexandra Grey. Via ioneglobalgrind on Wordpress
I feel like Hermione and Annabeth are a lot alike. They are both super smart, ambitious, bad asses and not to mention, not at all boy crazy. Both of their love interests started out as friends ( my favorite type ) and they didn’t just automatically fall in love. Not only do they break the stereotypes of being the “damsel in distress” , they literally redefined feminism as teenagers and a I’m so in love with the characters they both play !
But I don’t know that’s just my opinion. What do you guys think?
