Chan has dominated headlines since playing the troubled cousin Astrid in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’. Chan reminds us that political correctness works both ways, and she’s clearly still smarting from the racial pushback against her for playing Bess of Hardwick from the 2018 film ‘Mary Queen of Scots’.

Moore has made many headlines in 2019, and we turn to her February Teen Vogue article Indya Moore’s Young Hollywood 2019 Interview on the Groundbreaking Power of ‘Pose’ and the Need for Trans Representation Free From Oppression with writer Gabe Bergado.

As Angel on the groundbreaking, empowering FX series ‘Pose’, nominated for best television drama series at the 2019 Golden Globes, Indya Moore transforms into a trans woman of color doing sex work and becoming too close to a client. Not only does ‘Pose’ tell the story of the trans community, but it tells multiple narratives — that there is more than one way to be trans.

Moore appeared in the most recent Louis Vuitton campaign, and engages in global political convos on Twitter. In fact, the Bronx girl told Vogue before the Golden Globes about removing the lining from her leg-baring silver Louis Vuitton ‘armor dress’ with big, brash shoulders : “I get to decide how my body shows up in any space,” she says. “When I’m walking into a place like the Globes, I want to make it very clear that how I show up is to further the freedom of everybody.”
