Emma D’Arcy: Golden Globe nomination implies a larger space for transgender people
Emma D’Arcy said their Golden Globe nomination “implies that the space for transgender and gender nonconforming people is getting bigger and bigger.”

“I mean, it’s kind of surreal, isn’t it?” they say, talk to E! on the red carpet of the event.
“Because when I first started, I really felt that I had to pretend to be a woman to find success in this industry… it wasn’t sustainable, and I stopped pretending.

They continued: “I think the most important thing is that for me, that means the space for transgender and gender nonconforming people is just getting bigger and bigger.
So I feel, like, very honored.
