Transparent won the Golden Globe for best television series, comedy, and showrunner Jill Soloway did the un-Jared Leto thing and actually dedicated the award to two trans people and the community the show so heavily focuses on.
“This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn and too many trans people who die too young,” she said. “And it’s dedicated to you, my trans parent, my moppa. You’re watching at home right now. I just want to thank you for coming out because in doing so you made a break for freedom, you told your truth, you taught me how to tell my truth and make this show. And maybe we’re going to be able to teach the world something about authenticity and truth and love. To love.”
Beautifully said, Jill! This is how you use your vision and platform to change the world!
