Indya Moore Makes History as Elle's First Trans Cover Star!

Indya Moore Makes History as Elle's First Trans Cover Star!

Indya Moore is on the cover of Elle‘s June 2019 issue, hitting newsstands on May 21.

Here’s what the Pose actress had to say…

On her family’s reaction when she started displaying feminine behaviors as a child: “Because I was assigned male at birth, they expected me to be masculine or to perform the way they thought young boys should perform. And I did not. They didn’t understand. They had never experienced what it was like to have a family member who was genderqueer.”

On being sex trafficked as a teenager to obtain hormone replacement therapy: “I didn’t understand what sex trafficking was at the time. The language I knew was that they were, basically, my pimps. I was just a kid.”

On getting her role on Pose: “I just knew my life was going to change. I knew I had a chance to teach the world something that would help more people to be safe.”
