New York’s Lily Allen has been hailed as the “empowerment” of women of colour.
The “Honeymooners” star, best known for her role in the HBO hit “Transparent,” is now the “voice of empowerment for women.”
Lily Allen has made headlines since coming out as transgender in a series of interviews, including a CNN interview with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.
She also made headlines in June when she said she was “going to get married and have kids.”
Allen, who has made a name for herself in movies such as “American Honey” and “The Help,” has long been praised for her roles as a characteristically mischievous teen who has a heart of gold.
The “Lily” star has said that the “trans-positive” movement has helped her understand her own identity and “change the world.”
“I’ve never really known that I had to be a ‘trans-woman’ to be empowered,” she told People in a June interview.
“And I’ve never been a ‘queer woman’ to feel comfortable or at peace in my own skin.”
“If we all look at it, it’s all a very beautiful thing,” she continued.
“When you see yourself in the mirror and see who you are, you don’t have to change.
You don’t need to do anything.
You just have to look at yourself and know what you are.”
