Heard vs. Depp and a Conversation with Angelica Ross

Jun 7, 2022
  • First up, we break down the latest in pop culture news from the weekend’s most-talked about breakup — ahem, Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan — to the Depp vs. Heard verdict.

  • Then, we kick off Pride Month with a conversation with an icon. 

Within the last decade, there’s been a huge shift in trans representation in Hollywood. From “Orange is the New Black” to “Pose,” we’ve seen more diverse storylines that explore queer and trans experiences than ever before. And we’ve been introduced to some of our new favorite actors, like the multitalented Angelica Ross. 

Ross lip-synced her way into our hearts as Candy on FX’s “Pose,” and starred in the last few seasons of “American Horror Story.” 

Today, we chat with the actress, singer, and TransTech founder about trans representation on screen, her iconic TV roles, how she’s breaking barriers in the tech field, and what’s next on her Hollywood wishlist.
