Transgender Details, Career

She landed her first film role on Leave It on the Floor in 2011. Soon after that, she performed minor roles in Amazon’s Transparent.
Finally, her breakthrough came with her portrayal of the transgender character, Lulu Abundance, in FX’s musical drama series, Pose, in 2018.

As far as wanting a family, wanting to be married and wanting to provide for my family and be nurturing, those are important things that any woman would want. I operate in my life every day as a woman. I’ve been this way since I was a child, and it’s who I am.
