Pose's Indya Moore Explains Why They Probably Won't Attend the Met Gala Again

Indya Moore was at the 2021 Met Gala this year, but this might be the last time the Pose star walks the red carpet at the annual event.

“This will probably be my last Met Gala. I am going to think long and hard about why I came and if it is truly in alignment with what I want to accomplish in this life, the stories I want to tell and the messages I want to share,” Indya wrote on Instagram. “I’ve faced my own inconvenient truths that led me to reevaluate what I do, why I do it and how. I have been unhappy with what my experience has been behind the flashing lights cameras and the people between them and I so far. The message is often: if I do not like it, I can move on. I’ve noticed that Growth and change is bad for ‘the brand’ here, and when we get sick because of these lies we take meds to quell the symptoms, or we move on bc changing the environment & editing the tradition is too taboo.”

Indya continued, “I had to really think about if it is truly in alignment with what I care about because I I think it is possible to be an artist and a creative and simultaneously not invest in make-believe during a time make believe is weaponized against the truth, during a time where honesty and transparency is more important than ever. Being at the Met this year was cognitive dissonance. I entered and left feeling confused. But before that I felt clear. Grounded. People were protesting and arrested in the name of what so many of us who attended, care deeply about. They were arrested most likely because they were perceived as a threat to those of us who were there.”

“I don’t know if we know what we are doing, beyond what we are told. I wonder is there is a way to expand on how we collect amongst one another?” Indya said. “We organize millions for a museum, on stolen land that black and brown people suffer on unless white supremacy thinks they are exceptional- but not for the people? can’t we be substantially generous in ways that alleviate suffering and poverty? I am surprised that I was invited and I am grateful for the gesture and I want us to be more sincerely thoughtful around how we take from people we do not care about, not so we can accept that truth, but so that we can grow the heart to change it.”
