What a pleasure running into you last night and catching up @mxviv. For those of you who don't know, Mx Bond is a living legend and one of the foremost cabaret artists in the world who is also a brilliant writer and actor. You reminded me last night part of why I moved to NYC so many years ago. Just a few hours experiencing once again your wit, wisdom, freedom, brilliance and fearlessness, reconnected me to the scrappy tenacity peppered with a fierce sense of humor that helped me and folks like us survive in this city for so long. Thank you Viv for existing, for surviving and for carrying with you at all times the fierce, fearless queens, queers, trans folks and nonconformists who came before you and have stood beside you. You come as one but stand as ten thousand. Just felt inspired to celebrate you while you're still standing. So much love!!! ... #TransIsBeautiful #mxjustinvivianbond #voguemagazine pre #MetBall dinner

#flashbackfriday to 2017 at the Creative Arts Emmys. I still love this dress so much. But this post isn't about the dress. ... When I got my second Emmy nomination in 2017, I quite honestly had this anxiety attack that flooded my nervous system and made it hard for me to function for weeks. But trust I functioned and got ish done. It was just more challenging. My nervous system was just on overload. My physical body was just overwhelmed so much more so than the first time I was nominated. I am still so grateful to you @uzoaduba for reminding me that these things are above my pay grade and I can turn it over to my higher power. That was so helpful. After my conversation with @brenebrown last week I was reminded that joy is the most difficult emotion to feel and experience. I was reminded that the active practice of gratitude (not an attitude of gratitude) but an active daily practice of gratitude allows us to be able to lean into joy. I was reminded that leaning into vulnerability (uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure as Brene Brown defines it) allows us to experience joy more fully. Thank you to all my fellow artists who thought my work was Emmy worthy. I am still insanely humbled by that. I have the utmost respect for what we do as actors. I love my fellow actors so very much. I love you all!!! ... For all the dream seekers out there, when the time comes that your dreams are coming true it may feel completely overwhelming, even though it's what you've always wanted and worked so hard for. Turning it over to a higher power and giving them the credit and an active daily practice of gratitude might help your nervous system be able to more fully RECEIVE the blessing. ... Side note: I am still the ONLY openly trans person to be nominated for a prime time acting Emmy. But I have a feeling this year I will no longer be the only one. I am so very excited about this possibility. ... #TransIsBeautiful #fbf

#transformationtuesday.. Looking back isn't always productive. But having a good understanding of from where we come can help put the present in perspective. I've come a long way baby. But in many ways I am still the same, sometimes confident, sometimes insecure, passionate, ambitious, nerdy and creative girl I have always been. I have so much more to learn and so much more growing to do and that makes me very, very excited. ... #TransIsBeautiful

We never really know what's fully going on with people. There's often a story underneath what it is we think we see. Sometimes it feels like more than we can handle but our higher power, the universe doesn't give us more than we can handle. Right now I feel amazed at what my higher power thinks i can handle. ... #TransIsBeautiful #surrender #turningitover

Reposted from @rizahmed - Today I’m feeling scared, defiant, and full of love for those that hate me. I’m feeling #PhenomenallyMuslim. So let’s play a game. Tag a friend if you often wonder how long it will be before they round up Muslims to deport, imprison, or worse. We need to wake up, guys. What’s at stake isn’t just the fate of Muslims, what’s at stake is much more fundamental and affects us all - a civilised society where we are all considered equally human. There’s something phenomenally wrong in our society when politicians and media outlets can spout anti Muslim hate with no consequences - except more votes and increased sales. This has to stop. And it can - but Muslims need more non Muslim allies. To confront Islamaphobia wherever you see it, to speak out against the incitement of violence against us as a group and against individuals like Ilhan Omar, against travel bans and illegal detention, against the apologists for right wing terrorists who butcher at prayer. Make a stand on the right side of history. Because history has taught us what darkness lies ahead if we don’t act now.

#Fbf Ah Facebook with its memories. This was six years ago with my dear friend @sirarigold. I was living for the low maintenance fantasy of this shake and go hat (aka wig). At $19.99 I had like 4 of them. Looks like I had been sweating too. But I was still cute. Ari was serving his fashion forward shirtless fantasies. Ari is battling cancer right now. Go to the link in my profile to help with his expenses if you feel so inspired. I love you Ari! : https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-ari-kick-cancer ... #TransIsBeautiful #flashbackfriday

Wow! Tonight was super special for me. I got to chat with @brenebrown ahead of her @netflix special, "The Call To Courage." Her work helped save my life during a really dark time for me. Getting to do a deep dive with her, in front of a room full of people,about her own research was just heaven. I was insanely nervous and now I am just so incredibly happy I got to have this experience. Thank you so much Brene for your work and your generosity with me tonight. Thank you for everything!

In Providence, RI to speak at Rhode Island College tonight. What an amazing week on the road! I am so grateful I get to share my story and some of the things I have learned along the way. I am also grateful for everyone I have gotten to share space with this week. Thank you for all the love. Giving it right back to you.

This administration's ban on transgender service members will go into effect this Friday April 12, 2019. This administration has been targeting trans people from the moment they took power.

I finally own some vintage Mugler. I found this blazer online for next to nothing. The sleeves were just a bit short. I have long ass arms. My tailor @beatiebea extended the sleeves with some organza to mimic another Mugler blazer I recently found, since matching the vintage wool would be next to impossible. ... I started shopping in thift stores when I was in middle school. I still love vintage clothing and I love a bargain even more. The sense of history and hopefully timelessness in the right vintage pieces can be so very special. I think this blazer epitomizes that. I really am making an entire post about a jacket. But I honestly believe Thierry Mugler made some of the best jackets and women's suits ever. So yeah! Lol ... You're about to see me in this blazer all the time, ALL THE TIME, Like a lot. Quite possibly as early as Monday. Lol. Hopefully I can make it to Montreal for the Mugler exhibit before it ends in September. ... #TransIsBeautiful

Reposted from @indyamoore - Trans visibility is: The neglect of trans people & rejection of black trans people from black love & community is: repost • @angelicaross Another black trans woman was shot yesterday. Talk about people who “deserved more time to grow”. I think black trans women deserve more time to breathe and grow. I too once roamed the streets and count my blessings every day that I am still alive to tell the tale. I don’t care, I don’t care, YOU ARE NO HERO IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY IF BLACK LGBTQ* FOLKS CAN’T LOOK TO YOU AS THEIR HERO TOO. HOMOPHOBIA IS NOT A HEROIC TRAIT. PERIODT.

#tbt 2008 was a huge year for me. I did my first and second "Law and Order" that year, (a right of passage at the time for New York City actors.) I booked my first HBO show, the pilot of "Bored To Death" and I did something I never thought I would ever do. I competed on the VH1 reality show "I Wanna Work for Diddy." That's still 1 of the craziest things I have ever done and it changed my life for the better. Take a risk. Step out of your comfort zone but stay connected to who you are and your purpose when you do it. ... #TransIsBeautiful

When I was on the cover of @time magazine 5 years ago, it was a big deal that an openly trans black woman was on the cover of a major publication. In the 5 years since that cover many trans folks have graced the covers of magazines. In fact, openly trans folks are more visible now than ever before. But as trans folks continue to confront ideological, institutional, interpersonal and internalized oppressions that simultaneously threaten and deny our existence @indyamoore on the cover of @wmag is still a big deal. This unprecedented visibility has taught me that visibility is not enough, that visibility creates backlash and makes a group even more of a target. But I also know that going back to a time when trans folks could only exist in the shadows and on the margins is not an option. We have always been here and now more than ever we are insisting that we deserve equitable places in this world, in the light. I love you my trans siblings insisting on your right to exist. Congratulations Indya ... #TransIsBeautiful #IndyaMoore #Pose #Wmag

RIP Mr. Lagerfeld. Truly one of the greatest of all time, a real genius and visionary. Mr. Lagerfeld represented to me a certain kind of artist of a certain stature of a bygone era that doesn't exist anymore but lived on through him. Times are changing and certainly Mr. Lagerfeld changed with them but with a reverence for the past which seemed to permeate his very being. It always seemed effortless. ... #karllagerfeld
