oh my god
I’m watching the first episode of the most recent season of “project runway” and they’re doing their first model fitting. one of the models is telling her designer about how hard she has worked to get to this point. and then explains that she’s the first transgender model on PR.
and he literally bows to her and says that he’s so honored to have a real goddess wear his work.
he then explains in a voiceover that he had to suddenly flee his home in Himalayan India because homosexuality was illegal and a neighbor called the police and reported that he and his partner were living together, and that he therefore he feels a strong connection with his (Southeast Asian) model because they have this shared experience of ostracism and struggle.
she then tells him, “Keep knocking the door. If they don’t open, the door is going to break one day.”
I teared up so bad, y’all. This kind of representation is so powerful.
Cis people this is a post for trans people, notice the trans flag in the kid’s wings. Please please please keep this in mind when reblogging.
Proof that it was always about transphobia (transmisogyny specifically) and not protecting (cis) women
