Good afternoon, family! Jesse here with another Instagram takeover for the day. One of America In Transition’s greatest achievements is representing trans people of color on a big screen, but there’s one medium where representation may need a boost - video games! This screenshot is of Miranda Comay, a trans woman of color who also plays the role of city counselor in Watch Dogs 2. Prior to picking up the game, I had no clue that a trans character would be featured, let alone represented respectfully and genuinely, so it was an incredible surprise. Watch Dogs 2 isn’t the only game with a prominent trans character, though. Street Fighter, for instance, has featured Poison (another trans woman) as a fighter since 1989! What are some of your favorite trans characters in video games? And if you don’t know one, how would you like to see trans characters represented in games in the future? #transgender#trans#lgbt#gaming
Sometimes people forget there are people behind someone being trans, people are so quick to look and judge someone or question there validation when they have no idea what’s going on in the other persons head, people shouldn’t have to prove them self’s to be “valid” or “trans enough” there is reason behind every choice we make.
