Mya Taylor Is Marsha P. Johnson: Transgender 'Tangerine' Star Talks About Her New Role
Mya Taylor, a transgender actress best known for her role in director Sean Baker’s Tangerine, is making Hollywood history.

The 2015 independent film was a hit at Sundance, and Taylor has received many accolades for her portrayal of Alexandra. Taylor became the first trans actor to win a Gotham Award, she won the San Francisco Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actress, and she is a Best Supporting Actress nominee for the Film Independent Spirit Awards ceremony on February 27.

I had the opportunity to speak with Taylor about Tangerine, issues facing the trans community, and her role in the new film Happy Birthday, Marsha! as Marsha P. Johnson, one of the self-proclaimed “street queens” who ignited the 1969 Stonewall Riots.

Today I was standing in line at the grocery store and two girls were chatting in front of me. They were talking about their friends and stuff (drama between girls, relationships, the usual) when one of them said after mentioning one of their friends "yeah but he's asexual". And the other just went "Oh, well maybe *another guy's name* then". Basically they both know about asexuality and accept it and I was freaking out inside because it was the first time I heard anyone irl talking about it :D

Awesome!
