Patricia Arquette devoted Emmy speech to her late sibling


One of the members of the acting family, Patricia Arquette, took to the stage after winning the accolade for outstanding supporting actress in a limited series or movie for her role in the web TV series The Act. Her speech was a tribute to her sibling Alexis, who died 3 years ago, aged just 47 of HIV-related complications. Alexis Arquette, an actor, activist and cabaret performer, came out as transgender in 2006 but reportedly started presenting as a man again from 2013, their siblings described Alexis as gender-suspicious. Patricia said on behalf of all the Arquettes that they still don’t know how to live without Alexis and they all want discrimination against the transgender community to end. “I’m in mourning every day of my life, Alexis, and will be the rest of my life for you until we change the world for you, until we change the world so that trans people are not persecuted. And give them jobs,” said Patricia, urging the world to get rid of transphobic bias.
