In today's world, many people are struggling to accept themselves as gay, lesbian, pan or fluid. But, it doesn't mean there aren't otherwise. There are few individuals, who have been the epitomes of courage and confidence. They do not hesitate to believe in their sexual inclination and accept themselves as transsexuals despite the nerve-wracking pressure and backlashes.
One of such analogies is the bold and beautiful Indya Adrianna Moore, an American actress who openly identifies as a transgender. Battling through the transphobia and prejudice, she garnered applauding fame and success. She has nearly 126K followers on Instagram and 36.1K followers on Twitter. Moreover, she has already dedicated eight years in the entertainment realm.
Indya Moore’s Family, Height
Born in the year 1995, Indya Moore was raised in her family home in the Bronx, New York City, by her parents. Her mother is Puerto Rican, while her father holds a Caribbean background.
Indya has earned a General Equivalency Diploma. Currently, she is at the age of 23 and celebrates her birthday every 17th of January.
As Indya Moore’s wiki suggests, she stands at the height of 5 feet 8 inches (1.73m) with a toned body figure. She resides in a hostel-style living in Queens Place, which is one of the most expensive-rented places across New York City.
Struggle On Being Gay
Even though Indya was born in the body of a male, she never accepted herself as one. Before others were aware, she knew that she was meant to be a woman. Indya used to try on her mother's dresses and makeup as well. But, her parents, in the case, treated her differently; they didn't support her true identity as gay.
She eventually felt that her parents would never understand her, and faced transphobia in her society. At the age of fourteen, she moved away from her parents' home and lived in foster care. But, the hate and prejudice never ended, which made her regularly shuttle around in numerous boroughs.
Indya Moore’s Career, Net Worth
Indya was an aspiring biotech student. But, when the time came to balance bills and school, she couldn't afford them. So, she chose to drop out of her 10th grade at the age of 15. Then, she got her GED and started to work.

In her early days, she worked with her fashion-photographer friend as a model. She posed for brands such as Gucci and Dior. Meanwhile, she became motivated to join the acting field by legendary dancer and ballroom veteran, Jose Gutierez Xtravaganza. So, she appeared in various films, television series, and music videos and runways.
However, her breakthrough runway only occurred in 2017 at New York Fashion Week, where she was photographed for Vogue Espana. It was the same year when Indya appeared in Katy Perry's music video of Swish Swish, that added more to her increasing net worth.
Some of the major roles that she played were in the movies, Saturday Church (2017) and Pose (2018). Indya portrayed Dijon on Saturday Church, which follows the life of a boy, who is confused about his sexuality. And it was in the FX television series, Pose where Indya landed her second major role. The series where the actress stars as Angel, aims to inspire the transgender community.
