msisisking

So my lil bro @jharreljerome has so many fan pages now it's crazy haha. So very proud of him, his work and dedication to nailing the likeness, voice, and mannerisms of @koreykingwise. I wanted to share 3 of my fav fan videos of us as siblings Korey and Marci Wise who was his trans sister. Each of these clips with their own spin on editing and music, may or may not have made me tear up lol. Thank you guys for the overwhelming love and support. Still in cloud, one month later. I'm so thankful for the inclusion, for the recognition, and most excitingly my new friendships ❤. @whentheyseeus streaming on @netflix 💪🏽❤ SWIPE⏪

I just turned 13, and somehow Jedi mind tricked my mom into thinking it would be silly if she dressed me as her for Halloween. Wig, her lipstick, her hat, clothes & 4" boot heels. Everyone thought it was funny, but I felt free. 8 years later I made the bold choice to transition. My #PrideMonth ❤

msisisking

As a trans woman with 2 younger brothers I understand how transitioning can sometimes affect siblings. My youngest brother was to young to remember my transition, but my middle brother had it tough. I love the bond that Korey and Marci shared in #WhenTheySeeUs and believe it’s important to show more displays of affection between the trans community and our families. As you all know we loose so many trans women of color (Twoc) each year, and I love that this project has started so many deep conversations in our community. Protect and Love your trans family members, friends, and lovers we deserve comfort and support too. @WhenTheySeeUs @jharreljerome #BlackTransLivesMatter . . P.S. family members, if you dress us as men in our caskets, or send the media boy pictures of us/misgender us after we are murdered......we will haunt you for as long as you shall live. ❤️

msisisking

Pride month to me represents standing in your truth. In a world filled with hate, danger, misconception, and discrimination towards the #lgbt community we are still brave enough to live out loud and unapologetically. That’s Pride! 🌈❤️ @prism @netflix . . Photog: @irrisrray Styled: @lil_saigon

msisisking

They don’t care, so I have to care more. There is an elephant in the room and it’s called Black men killing black trans women. Let’s talk about it. My black brothers this is a convo you have to join in to, at work, at church, at a game. End the stigma of saying it’s ok to support and love us. We are your sisters, cousins, aunts, girlfriends. We just want to survive man that’s all.

msisisking

OMG!! Someone just sent this shot to my manager! I'm so very honored for this Consideration of "OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A LIMITED SERIES" at the @TelevisionAcad #Emmys for my role as #MarciWise in @WhenTheySeeUs .... This project means so much to me on so many levels and I feel I won already. I'm just so thankful for this, and for my Queen @Ava who believing in me. PLEASE GO VOTE!!! 🙏🏼 #ForYourConsideration #fyc #WhenTheySeeUs..... I'M NOT CRYING YOU ARE!

Via @niecynash1: The truth is a beautiful thing🙌🏽 Thank you @Ava @netflix AND THANK ALL OF YOU FOR SUPPORTING THIS PROJECT❤️ God bless Antron, Kevin, Yusef, Korey & Raymond 🙏🏽. #ForYourConsideration #Emmy #WhenTheSeeUs #fyc .

Working on @WhenTheySeeUs was an experience I will never forget. I stood up all night the day before thinking about this intense scene that I would have to film with @niecynash1 and @jharreljerome, two brilliant actors who's work I've admired previously. I walked in to a calmness on set; a supportive crew who all looked out for each other and genuinely wanted to make sure you were good. The place I pulled emotions from was oh so real, with source material hitting the news practically weekly of black trans women being murdered. . After the last take Niecy came to give me a hug and apologized for the things she had to say as her character, then @Ava followed up with a hug and a "I'm so proud of you" that reached the core of my being. #WhenTheySeeUs is such a complexed title, and the affirmation from all these beautiful faces on set was a reminder that when trans women are uplifted, appreciated, and seen....we truly excel, hell we can do anything. #FYC @netflix #BlackTransLivesMatter

Thank you to my friend and La stylist @walikwalik for the touch up, trim, and style. Looks like I'm ready to walk school girl realness yasssssssss lol

In this moment I stand in the name of Octavia St. Laurent and all the other black trans women who dreamed bigger than the world was ready to accept. For all my black trans sisters who's lives were cut short before getting a chance to think about what they wanted to do in it; this moment is greater than me. It would be a disservice if I didn't use this time to speak on the high murder rate of black trans women. . Dear Family, Friends, Fans, and Associates... it could easily be me, an out black transsexual woman. Cowards would rather kill us than to deal with the possible public shame of dating us. Cowards would rather kill us than to deal with any generational stigma and toxic masculinity that (in most cases) plague the black community. Stand with and for us as we have always done for you, on the front line with courage. If you care about me at all, you will help us fight this fight. Talk to your sons about acceptance; start the conversations young. Plant seeds of understanding at home to create safe spaces which encourages your kids to share who they are with you without fear of rejection, or being reprimanded. . To my black trans sisters, we are resilient and don't ever forget that. This sisterhood is here for a reason. When they don't protect and uplift us, we have to do it for each other. We got this 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 Make sure you check out the televised @whentheyseeus #FYSee event airing at 10pm est on @owntv and @netflix. Hearing the exonerated men talk last night broke us all down. The way they never gave up against all odds is truly inspirational. Thank you @ava and @oprah for the memories last night that I will carry on with me forever. ❤❤❤ #netflixfysee #WhenTheySeeUs #BlackTransLivesMatter

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a special screening of @5bfilm U.S. premiere to helps kick off #LaPride. Thank you @jnj for having me as your guest, this documentary is a must see about some kick ass nurses during the beginning of the Aids epidemic. *Wearing @slayedbymzcece Mink lashes in "Toya". A special thank you @caroduncan for the bold vintage jacket, I hope you like how I styled it! ❤️❤️

msisisking

What do you think we can we do to continue this conversation? It's very much needed. #BlackTransLivesMatter

msisisking

SWIPE⬅️ This #Pride Month we should remind ourselves that their is power in what we speak. Let’s speak more positivity into the world because Unity is Power. Thanks @netflix @prism ....

SWIPE⬅️ @dcbeings asked me to take the phrase “Bold + Being” and turn it into 3 sketches, then turn one of the sketches into a design. If you didn’t know I’ve been designing for 20 years. I even went to college for fashion design after winning a full scholarship in a designing competition. Fashion Design has always been my first love, and a way for me to channel/flush out emotions. This design was inspired by tropical fish caught in hooks and a net, trapped and unable to escape reality so deciding to shine beautiful until it’s last breath. A #BoldBeing to me is knowing the risk of standing out in a world designed to marginalize you, and doing it anyway. Go check out the link in @dcbeings bio, or in my story to see the full video we created to accompany this design! ————————————————- Videographer: @photosbyrome Photographer: @joyannepanton Hair: @walikwalik  Makeup: @stephaniefaiirah Animator/Illustrator: @thefoxfisher

So seeing a conversation like this taken place amongst black men is so important. Did you know that black trans women have the average life expectancy of only 35 years old? Even if you don't agree, we atleast need your protection. Black men, respecting trans women DON'T MAKE YOU GAY. I'm so honored in being apart of a story that helps shine light on the family aspect of this topic. Thank you @the.root (the full video convo about the show on their website). Thank you @strongblacklead @ava @pinkhammerentertainment @niecynash1 @jharreljerome #BlackTransLivesMatter -------------------------------------------- @WhenTheySeeUs is now streaming on @netflix ❤❤❤❤

msisisking

One of the most challenging and rewarding moments of my career was taking on the role of Norman/Marci Wise (before and after her transition). @Ava Thank you for helping me reach another tier of comfort within myself that I didn't even know existed. . To @jharreljerome and @niecynash1 my "lil bro and momma" I would be lucky to get the chance to work with both you amazing talents again. To the crew and cast thank you all! And to hair & makeup, I enjoyed the process each and every time. Black families and families of color, love your trans children. To many trans women of color are being murdered out here, this is a start. #WhenTheySeeUs STREAMING NOW ON @NETFLIX! #BlackTransLivesMatter ❤🙏🏼💪🏽

Saw @DisneyAladdin once and turned into #PrincessJasmine lol. What would you wish for if you had a wish from genie? 🧞‍♂️#aladdin

msisisking

They tell us that we don’t matter, they tell us that we don’t deserve love. They belittle us, beat us, and they even kill us. When we are kicked out of our homes we make a way. When we are homeless we make a way. We make a way, we always make a way. My trans sisters keep your heads up, don’t ever let them knock your crown. We were given this gift for a reason. Stand in your truth proudly, and unafraid. Don’t be discouraged because WE GOT THIS GODDESSES! #TransLivesMatter. Dress: @manzanaresny Photog: @_corymalcolm
