EXCLUSIVE: Jill Soloway and Alexandra Billings Discuss How Far-ish Transgender Storytelling Has Come

●TELEVISION
“First, television has never seen a trans person, certainly with the age I am and with the body that I have, naked on television,” says Alexandra Billings, who plays Davina. “There is a care that Jill and the writers took -- it wasn’t about fetishizing or sexualizing, and it wasn’t desexualized. It was simple, plain conversation.”

The creator and star of Amazon’s award-winning series open up to ET about some of the show’s historic moments and its shortcomings.

Great Hearts Academies Policy On Transgender Students Angers Some Alumni

●USA
“The policy specifies that students must use the bathrooms and locker rooms that match the sex listed on their birth certificates. It also applies to pronouns, dress code and school activities. Arizona law requires a written statement from a doctor verifying the person has undergone gender reassignment surgery in order to change a birth certificate. ”

Hannah Duncan said she got a great education at Veritas Preparatory Academy — one of 28 charter schools in Arizona and Texas run by Great Hearts Academies. So when the 24-year-old alum heard from a transgender student about his time there, she was disconcerted.“The discrimination he was experiencing...

EDITORIAL: Transgender inmates are targets, not threats

●CANADA
“In 2016, a transgender woman (Jane Doe) was assaulted by a group of inmates while incarcerated in a Louisiana men’s prison. According to The Advocate, Doe states that she called to prison guards for help but received none. Left with several broken bones in her face, Doe passed out. As Doe’s lawsuit asserts, when she cried for help again upon waking, a guard then threatened that “if she did not shut up he would shoot her.””

Diversity Report: Every Runway at New York Fashion Week Featured at Least 2 Models of Color for Spring 2018

●FASHION
“It’s worth noting that Fall 2017’s figures would not lag quite as far behind had in-demand model Teddy Quinlivan revealed her transgender identity earlier. Last February, Quinlivan appeared in eight major New York shows. At the time, Quinlivan chose to present as a cisgendered female “not only to protect [her] career, but … also to protect [herself] from being hurt.” At the close of New York’s Spring 2018 shows, Quinlivan came out as transgender in a groundbreaking CNN interview. With 11 major castings under her belt, she was among the season’s sixth most-booked catwalkers. As such, the 23-year-old modeling success is largely responsible for the wide distribution (and prestige) of Spring 2018’s trans and non-binary castings. Still, Quinlivan isn’t solely to thank for this unprecedented progress.
