“I reflect on certain very difficult times in my life, certain struggles and obstacles and all that. And I think, ultimately getting through that, I think it really deepens your empathy.” – @TheElliotPage
"I love making The #UmbrellaAcademy. I’ve learned how special it is to play one character for so long, to evolve with a family of characters."
With Season 3 premiering on Netflix today, revisit our Summer 2022 cover story starring @TheElliotPage: esqr.co/IgGtZzO
Esquire asked me to write abt working w/ @TheElliotPage & showrunner Steve Blackman to re/imagine Viktor, Elliot’s character on @UmbrellaAcad — & to graft Viktor’s becoming onto a tightly executed season, as the show was going into production on Season 3.
A wild & v cool ride! twitter.com/esquire/status…
This @deAdderCanada cartoon nails it. After 1/2 century of grossly polluting the air & water in & beyond Pictou County & decimating the forests of NS, the Mill owners are suing NS taxpayers for $450 million for being forced to stop their massive polluting. �#NorthernPulpp#nspoliiU
For transgender youth in Alabama, please know there are still resources and support available for you.
Check out these local organizations that provide direct services and support for more info.
We encourage everyone to support them by donating.
Gov. Ivey has signed the felony health ban making Alabama now the third state to cut off health care to trans kids. We blocked Arkansas and Texas. We will sue Alabama next. But this is just so unbelievably cruel and dangerous.
BREAKING: Alabama just passed a bill that criminalizes providing gender-affirming care to trans youth.
This is the first piece of legislation nationwide that would make this care a felony.
If this bill is signed, we will sue.
Do you all know how bad this is? A doctor working together with parents to provide care that is recommended by every major medical and pediatric association, like puberty blockers, will be a FELONY, punishable by up to 10 years in jail. twitter.com/chasestrangio/…
Trans people are hyper visible, for #TDOV we need mobilization. Show up for us, with us, and for liberation. Join our actions at @Trans_Week, donate to trans-led organizations, and be present to love and build with us every day.
Good morning. Arizona is likely to pass two anti-trans bills and an abortion ban today.
We are gearing up to fight back against SB1165 (trans sports ban) and SB1138 (limited trans health ban). Tell @DougDucey to VETO these bills if they reach his desk.
And multiple anti-trans bills are moving in Oklahoma TODAY. Please take action and raise all the alarms. They are toying with kids' survival to score political points. secure.everyaction.com/TuxNSMgpGUi_NK…!
This Friday, March 11th, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) will meet and allow public comment. The Governor's order and CPS investigations are on the agenda.
You can help trans kids in Texas at this hearing! 🧵
cannot force myself to share pictures of bodies of ukrainians, dismembered, suffocated, shot in this genocide. feels like their sacrifice demands more honor than that. but also each and every european has to see the ugly cost of inaction. a harrowing choice to consider
HB 266 and SB 184 passed out of House committee yesterday and will now go to the entire Alabama House for a vote.
We must let the House know that we are against this bad legislation. Tell them to vote 'NO' 🚫 on these bills.
Both Iowa and Indiana have passed anti-trans sports bills now awaiting Governor signature. Alabama is moving rapidly to pass a felony ban on health care. Idaho has a hearing on a felony ban on health care tomorrow. Arizona is moving an anti-trans sports bill. This is a lot.
🚨Alabama had passed HB266 and SB184 out of House committee. SB184 has passed the Senate already. A felony ban on health care for trans people up to 19 is now close to passage. They are trying to eradicate us. 🚨
🚨 IOWA Senate just passed HF2416, a bill to ban trans athletes. It now heads to the Governor for signature.
TAKE ACTION: Tell Gov. Kim Reynolds to VETO this bill now via this from@OneIowaActionn or call her office at 515-281-5211
I hope we don't lose the momentum to fight for trans kids in Texas and beyond. Alabama and Idaho are quickly moving bills that would criminalize health care for trans youth and put them and their families in a precarious position. Please help us fight these.
Follow @chasestrangio for all the efforts to stop these attempts to destroy trans youth. Listen to trans youth. Donate to both national orgs and local trans led efforts. Watch Changing the Game (Hulu) and Disclosure (Netflix). SPEAK UP. We can’t do this on our own.
Texas has declared that the kind of care recommended by every major medical and pediatric association, with decades of proof of efficacy, and provided by doctors in full cooperation with parents … is child abuse. twitter.com/GregAbbott_TX/…
This is an absolute nightmare. But supporting your kid is NOT child abuse and families will be protected and defended as best we can and if we need to help you get out of Texas we will do that too. I am sorry this is the horrible world we live in.
This on top of Texas's efforts to try to make affirming one's trans child a form of child abuse. These bills and governmental efforts will have deadly costs and these governments will not stop with care for trans minors.
There are criminal health bans on care for trans youth still moving in Oklahoma and Alabama. There is a sweeping health ban moving in Tennessee (that also bans insurance coverage for trans people of all ages). Arizona is moving a bill to ban top surgeries for minors.
I am flying to Phoenix tomorrow to testify against a bill that would prohibit health care for trans minors. I want to support the families and organizers on the ground and try to help raise the national profile of the bill. We know that pressure works so let's do this.
