A Black trans girl from the south side of Chicago is blossoming into one of Hollywood’s most talked about stars.
And there's an update.
"If I lost everything I have created because of being myself and because of loving who I want to love then I don't want it," she said of coming out.
The period drama is sensuous and heartbreaking.
Ma Rainey, Jim Parsons, Andra Day and more were also tapped.
The film addresses the intersectional experience of being both Black and gay.
