“I went through the fire, now I am the fire:” ‘Pose’ star Dominique Jackson talks self-preservation, identity for Trans remembrance week

Over time, Jackson said, she came to realize that her identity could persist without disrespecting those around her. She went on to enter the modeling industry, inspired by models like Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks to persevere in the face of adversity. Still, it was a mixed sense of pain and courage that later helped her break out into the acting industry.

The letter called for the University to, among 48 total demands, reform hiring practices, rename multiple campus buildings and monuments, implement widespread antiracism training, and acknowledge that the University exists on land of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation.

The danger of blanket statements

“It can be argued that the short and catchy nature of slogan-like short phrases is a necessary attribute, crucial to achieving the objectives of garnering attention, spreading awareness, and recruiting support for said movement. Yet, it is exactly because these movements and sentiments are reduced to short terms and phrases that they result in polarized debate and ultimately hinder the accruing of support.”
