Kelly Marie Tran

I wholeheartedly recommend reading Kelly Marie Tran’s statement in the New York Times.

It’s a powerful piece, with an essential message.

Here’s an excerpt:

I want to live in a world where children of color don’t spend their entire adolescence wishing to be white. I want to live in a world where women are not subjected to scrutiny for their appearance, or their actions, or their general existence. I want to live in a world where people of all races, religions, socioeconomic classes, sexual orientations, gender identities and abilities are seen as what they have always been: human beings.

This is the world I want to live in. And this is the world that I will continue to work toward.

For those who don’t know, Kelly Marie Tran – or to use her real name, Loan – played Rose in The Last Jedi and this summer deleted her Instagram posts following online harassment.
