cisgendered man wins best actor for playing a trans woman
mentions his rock band and the conflicts in ukraine and venezuala but not even a word specifically about trans people
Quebec filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Dallas Buyers Club, spoke to CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi, who asked whether he ever considered casting a transgender actor."Never. [Are] there any transgender actors?" he said. "I’m not aiming for the real thing. I’m aiming for an experienced actor who wants to portray the thing." (x)by “the thing” of course he means someone who is transgender
Why not let actual queer people play the parts of queer people
fuck jared leto tbh
Somebody lost an Oscar bet
no, somebody thinks it’s gross that an actor portraying a trans woman in his winning role couldn’t even be bothered to mention trans women in his acceptance speech, you flippant prick
Jared Leto receives an Oscar for portraying a trans woman while trans women receive shame and violence for being trans women.
