Indya Moore urges people to show empathy


Indya Moore is a 24-year-old transgender non-binary actor and model signed to IMG, the face of Louise Vuitton, plays a lead role in Pose and is also, as they say, “a black trans person from the Bronx who comes from poverty”. Appearing on the cover of AnOther magazine they used a spotlight to bring a message of the importance of showing empathy because as long as people are empathic the world has a chance to be saved. But people need to be taught to how empathy – to do so it is important to raise awareness and to represent people from their own perspective, like the transgender community is represented in Pose . “When you see yourself in someone who is not you, you see your experience being represented in a body that is not yours, that looks nothing like you, that is what stimulates empathy. You’re able to empathize with an experience you may not have had any proximity to… People seeing us in the same spaces that they see themselves in ‘un-others’ us,” says the actor.
