Brie Larson, Selena Gomez, Halle Berry & More Sign Open Letter to Transgender Community

Halle Berry, Brie Larson and Selena Gomez are just three of the big names on an open letter of love to the transgender community, in honor of Women’s History Month and Transgender Day of Visibility.

“Trans women and girls have been an integral part of the fight for gender liberation. We uphold that truth and denounce the ongoing anti-transgender rhetoric and efforts we witness in various industries,” the letter — organized by GLAAD and Raquel Willis — reads.

It goes on, saying “we acknowledge with clarity and strength that transgender women are women and that transgender girls are girls. And we believe that honoring the diversity of women’s experiences is a strength, not a detriment to the feminist cause. All of us deserve the same access, freedoms, and opportunities. We deserve equal access to education, employment, healthcare, housing, recreation, and public accommodations. And we must respect each person’s right to bodily autonomy and self-determination.”

The letter also advocates for the end of “the long history of assaults” against trans women and girls, including recent anti-trans legislation.

“2020 was the deadliest year on record for the transgender community, seeing more than 44 killings, and, so far, there have been at least nine deaths reported this year,” it notes.

“We all must fight against the unnecessary and unethical barriers placed on trans women and girls by lawmakers and those who co-opt the feminist label in the name of division and hatred,” the letter concludes. “Our feminism must be unapologetically expansive so that we can leave the door open for future generations.”

In addition to Selena, Halle and Brie, the letter has also been signed by Gloria Steinem, Regina King, Chelsea Clinton, Bella Hadid, Janelle Monáe, Patricia Arquette, Laverne Cox, Julianne Moore, Megan Rapinoe, Gabrielle Union, Cynthia Erivo, Judith Light, Amy Schumer, Cara Delevingne, Senator Sarah McBride, New York Attorney General Letitia James, Alicia Garza, Lena Waithe, Sarah Paulson, Alison Brie, Alyssa Milano, Lilly Singh, Ilana Glazer, America Ferrera, Mj Rodriguez, Kat Graham, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, Geena Rocero, Peppermint, Tegan & Sara, Beanie Feldstein, Barbara Smith, Melissa Etheridge, Ashlyn Harris & Ali Krieger, Lena Dunham, Amiyah Scott, Tatiana Maslany, Tess Holliday, Sarah Kate Ellis, Anna Wintour and many more.

Brie Larson to Produce & Star in Apple's 'Lessons in Chemistry'!

Brie Larson is taking on a big new role.

The 31-year-old actress will star in and executive produce an Apple drama series called Lessons in Chemistry, Variety reported Friday (January 22).

The series received a straight-to-series order at Apple, and is based on the upcoming debut novel from author, science editor, and copywriter Bonnie Garmus.

Here’s a plot summary: “Set in the early 1960s, Lessons in Chemistry follows Elizabeth Zott (Larson), whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in a society deeming that women belong in the domestic sphere, not the professional one. When Elizabeth finds herself pregnant, alone and fired from her lab, she musters the ingenuity only a single mother has. She accepts a job as a host on a TV cooking show, and sets out to teach a nation of overlooked housewives – and the men who are suddenly listening – a lot more than recipes, all the while craving a return to her true love: science.”

Erin Brockovich screenwriter Susannah Grant is writing the series. The book is set to be published in Spring of 2022.

Brie also recently got candid about her appearance, and revealed she thought she was “ugly.”

During the interview, she spoke about her routine and self-care.

“I have started winding down once the sun starts to set. It’s also my cue to start cooking dinner, go into the garden – that’s how it starts. I’ve been burning frankincense in the house too, because it not only smells great, but it’s great for cleansing the air in the house; it’s anti-microbial. I’ve also been trying to watch a movie every night,” she explained.

“Sometimes I’ll do some breathing exercises, or I’ll meditate if I’ve had a particularly stressful day. For me, it’s about what can I do that is transitional out of work into decompressing time, because when you’re at home all day I feel it’s very easy to let everything stick and hang on to you. It’s about knowing what’s the routine and what’s the ritual to get out of that,” she continued.

She also discussed beauty.

“I don’t believe that there is a beauty standard. I struggled with feeling ugly and like an outcast for so much of my life. And so I really, really feel for that. It took me a long time to be able to be totally comfortable with myself,” she went on to say.

“The thing that has brought me solace is knowing that I can be whoever I want to be with myself. What breaks my heart is to think of people in the world who don’t feel that they have safety within their own bodies. That, to me, is my ultimate goal in life: to do whatever it is that I can so people have the freedom to express themselves and be exactly who it is that they want to be – whatever that is – knowing that that can also change.”

Brie Larson recently revealed she was doing this amid the election.

Brie Larson is showing off her cute and custom “Vote” bag!

The 31-year-old Captain Marvel star used her voice in the upcoming Presidential Election and shared her story of how she waiting in line to cast it, as many ballots that are mailed right now are getting lost.

“Voting can be a precarious experience. Turns out some vote by mail ballots don’t show up to your home, like in my case this year!” Brie shared on her Twitter with her fans. After her ballot didn’t show, she took matters into her own hands.

“So, what did I do? I put on my mask, placed my voter guide in my handy dandy VOTE purse and drove my ass down to my local polling location to request a ballot and VOTED,” she continued. “It may not be as easy as we want it to be, but even a complicated journey to having your vote counted is a journey worth embarking on.

Brie added a final note to fans, along with a close up on that cute purse.

“Vote in person if you haven’t yet voted, or drop your mail in ballot at your local ballot box (don’t mail it now as it may not get there on time to be counted!). Your voice matters. Your vote is valid. And I am wishing you all the strength in fighting any battles on your vote 2020 journey!”
