LeBron James thanks the Trans Cast of ‘Pose’ for being Inspirational Women

Black women have been dominating magazine covers lately, so much so that even the arguably best basketball player in the world, LeBron James, has taken notice.

In a slideshow on Instagram, James thanked some notable women for their important and inspiring work with a slideshow of their magazine covers. Along with Beyoncé, Issa Rae, and Zendaya was Out Magazine’s latest cover featuring the transgender cast of FX’s Pose.

“Nothing in this world is more POWERFUL than Colored Women!” James wrote on Instagram. “Thank you all for continuing to not settle and setting great examples in life for so many looking up to you for inspiration/guidance and love!! My daughter is watching! #WomenPower”

The image of actresses MJ Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, and Indya Moore didn’t go unnoticed by Twitter. 

And it’s even made its way back to MJ Rodriguez. When Variety asked about her LeBron shout out, Rodriguez couldn’t help but gush.

“Thank you, LeBron! I saw that today and that speaks volumes. I knew it was possible, I knew there were people out there watching, I knew that there were people receiving because it touches all types of demographics and it bridges the gap between many different communities that don’t understand that are becoming to understanding.

“Not only was he representing for trans women, he was representing for African-American women.”
