Thread'Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen' now on Netflix | "Having cis men play trans women [in film] is a direct link to the violence against trans women"
One of the big issues is that... trans people simply aren't getting opportunities. While cis women are fighting for equal pay, many trans people simply would be happy to be paid at all, because they're not getting any opportunities in the first place. That's part of what makes shows like Pose so wonderful. Maybe there will be a time where trans people get just as many opportunities as cis people, but we don't live in that world, and I'm not sure we will honestly.
