Mj Rodriguez has made history as part of the largest transgender cast ever assembled for a scripted television series.
She is one of five trans performers of color to be featured on “Pose,” a series set in the ballroom culture of the city 30 years ago. Season two of the FX show begins next week.
Rodriguez will be honored in the National Puerto Rican Day parade in New York City on Sunday.
She is being recognized as the 2019 Trailblazer Honoree.
“Believe it or not, I’ve never really been to the Parade before, but goin’ for my first time, and actually being around people who are just like me. It feels good. It’s liberating. It feels good,” Rodriguez said.
