Indya Moore and Jaboukie Young-White Are ‘Young Hollywood’
Both Jaboukie Young-White, a gay comedian, and Indya Moore, a transgender actress and activist, join the Young Hollywood Class of 2019, a list of “seven emerging actors who are paving the way to a better tomorrow.”
Young-White has written on both American Vandal and Big Mouth, and is currently working as a correspondent on The Daily Show. His interview with Teen Vogue focuses largely around his experience as a young person catapulted so quickly into a fast-moving career in Hollywood, and the challenges and excitement he’s faced in that regard so far.
But he’s also already looking to the future, and shared some of what he hopes to see come out of Hollywood soon:
“I’m really excited to see stories coming from queer people and people of color that are able to explore our humanity outside of suffering and being the victim,” Young-White said. “I feel like we have so much more to offer than the sh*tty things people do to us.”
Moore shares his interest in branching out from things “about [her] gender and the pain that comes with being ostracized by society.”
“We get to imagine cis people outside of even everyday functions, but trans people only seem to be seen through our gender and what people dislike or like or fetishize about that. I think that’s the only use that people see trans people for right now,” she added. “I’m waiting for us to move past that point. I want cis people to see themselves in me.”
Moore rose to fame after being cast in a leading role in Ryan Murphy’s Pose, and even though that was just a year ago, she’s continued pushing forward. She’s currently starring in and producing a short genderbent version of Frankenstein, called Magic Hour, and told Teen Vogue that she’s also busy writing a horror film, and would love to one day make the move to running her own show.
“I want to hire everybody that nobody wants to hire,” she said. “I want to accumulate as much power that I can [and] give it away.”
Moore and Young-White are joined by Jharrel Jerome, Joey King, Florence Pugh, Danielle MacDonald, and Yalitza Aparicio for the Young Hollywood Class of 2019. And it sounds like they’re all in pretty good company.
