If you haven’t heard, which you probably have, Mj Rodriguez has won a Golden Globe for Pose. This makes her the first transgender woman to win such an award. And the importance of her win isn’t lost on anyone. Because this woman has been working hard for years, honing her craft, to get to the point where she is now. Her work on FX’s Pose tipped the scales and made for an unforgettable role that shone a spotlight on a much forgotten AIDS epidemic during the 80’s and the community who suffered through it all.
As a means of drowning out all the ignorant and bigoted hate that we’ve seen on Twitter, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite reactions. In these tweets you will see people celebrating Rodriguez, praising her work, and talking about how history was made. And before you click off to find the hate, because we’re all guilty of that, remember that they aren’t worth it. What is worth it is the door that Rodriguez is opening and the lives she is changing.
