Ryan Murphy is the co-creator (with Steven Canals) of a new FX series, “Pose”, to be aired in early June. He took to Twitter last week to advocate for LGBT charities stating, “I am donating 100 percent of my profits from my new FX show POSE towards trans and LGBTQ charitable organizations. These groups do amazing work and need our support. Every day for the next 14 days I will highlight a group I’m supporting, and encourage you to do the same!” His new TV series is about the trans-women ballroom culture scene that took place in New York City during the late 1980’s. The show will feature the most transgender cast of actors in a single TV series in American history, including: MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar, and Angelica Ross. In his very first post since his charitable promise, Murphy wrote about the first featured LGBTQ charity, “The Sylvia Rivera Law Project. SRLP works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence.” Murphy encourages all of his followers to donate to, advocate for, and share any other LGBTQ charities for the cause.
