Indya Moore has cemented the major moment they are having right now as the June cover of Elle magazine. Having appeared as the face of Louis Vuitton, as well as Calvin Klein, the Pose star is now the first trans person to appear on the cover of the American version of Elle.

In the accompanying feature, writer Jada Yuan explains that Indya is nonbinary and utilizes they/them pronouns. They allow the usage of “she,” most for the comfort of others who assume their pronouns due to how society discusses trans identities. But in the accompanying feature, Moore goes on to reveal a lot more about becoming the person they are today.

The story of many trans or queer people of color can be tragic tales that involve violence, poverty and sometimes exploitation. Moore’s tale includes it all. In the feature they detail how signs of femininity as a child prompted discipline from their Jehovah’s Witness, Latinx parents as they had been assigned male at birth. That discipline became so bad that Moore was relocated to the foster system.
