Whether it’s playing Angel on Pose or modeling for Louis Vuitton, Indya Moore is a force to be reckoned with. That, and January 17 is their birthday, sharing this special day with Former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Most importantly, they never lived their life with the mantra of “shut up and act” or “shut up and pose.” As an actress, model and trans person, they have always used their platform to raise awareness around the issues and violence Black trans women face and to check folks transphobia on Twitter.

(Remember when they wore those keepsake earrings remembering the murdered Black trans women last year year?)

 

lndya is such a light and can literally shut down any red carpet their grace. So to celebrate that innate sense of style, spunk, and tenaciousness, here are 20 times they gave us our entire life with their lewks!

Happy Birthday Indya!
