“I’m Hispanic, but I’m white-passing, so I’m like…what is my responsibility as an ally? I learned that I have to put my fears aside and speak up for all of the people of color that I love, that I don’t know, and the people that are being treated poorly and abused and killed,” she said during the chat.

“I need to put my fears aside…I just didn’t want anyone to question my intentions….I’m gonna be an ally, and I think people need to do the same with the trans community. I really consider myself an ally,” she went on to explain.

“Trans rights are human rights! My friend @alokvmenon has a new book out called #BeyondTheGenderBinary that is a great resource to learn more about how to support trans and gender non-conforming people…there’s so many golden nuggets I wish everyone could hear so please please please pick this book up for a great cause and a great read!! 💖💖💖 love you so much Alok - thank you for having me today on your live and for your incredible friendship!!!” she later wrote on her Instagram.

She recently shared cute photos of her kissing her new boyfriend on social media.
