"I think we all evolve as we get older and that’s normal but I like to think that my recent transition hasn’t made me into a different individual. Same person, no difference at all just a different sex."

  2. Matt Bomer, Laverne Cox and More React to Historic Emmy Noms
"I couldn’t even speak for the first minute, I was overcome with gratitude, just the moment was so profound for me. I’ve been working in TV for 13 years and to have this moment, I was completely overwhelmed and had to collect myself for a bit. [My husband] Simon knew firsthand how hard I worked on this role, how much we put into it, myself as an actor, and us collectively as a family. it was just really great to get to share that moment with him." — Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart
"I jumped up and down and then cried. My agent of seven years, Paul, was the first person to call me. I’d auditioned for other agents in the past who all told me, ‘I can’t do anything with you, you’re trans, I don’t think you’ll be able to get work.’ But Paul saw something in me and took a chance." — Laverne Cox, Orange Is the New Black
“I’m a little floored, I’ll be honest. The very first thing that hit me, and it took a while to sink in was, how lucky am I that I was a part of two different projects that have both been deemed mentionable, if you will, by the peers for this year. That fact alone I need to make sure I really let sink in and enjoy while it’s happening. Because it doesn’t seem to be a thing that probably is going to happen a lot. The odds are against it, no matter how good the work is.” — Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory, The Normal Heart

  5. Sam Smith Opens up About Life and Love | The Fader

In the Lonely Hour is about a guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn’t love me back. I think I’m over it now, but I was in a very dark place. I kept feeling lonely in the fact that I hadn’t felt love before. I’ve felt the bad things. And what’s a more powerful emotion: pain or happiness?
…I am comfortable with myself, and my life is amazing in that respect. I’m very comfortable and happy with everything. I just wanted to talk about him and have it out there. It’s about a guy and that’s what I wanted people to know—I want to be clear that that’s what it’s about. I’ve been treated as normal as anyone in my life; I’ve had no issues. I do know that some people have issues in life, but I haven’t, and it’s as normal as my right arm. I want to make it a normality because this is a non-issue. People wouldn’t ask a straight person these questions. I’ve tried to be clever with this album, because it’s also important to me that my music reaches everybody. I’ve made my music so that it could be about anything and everybody— whether it’s a guy, a female or a goat—and everybody can relate to that.
