Ruby Rose believes that there is a big transgender movement happening and she’s proud to be alive during it.
Rose identifies as gender fluid which she explained to Elle magazine meant that she doesn’t identify as any gender.
“I’m not a guy; I don’t really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one. So, I’m somewhere in the middle, which – in my perfect imagination – is like having the best of both sexes,” she told the magazine.
“I have a lot of characteristics that would normally be present in a guy and then less that would be present in a woman. But then sometimes I’ll put on a skirt – like today.”
Rose is even about to launch a joint venture with her fiancee Phoebe Dahl which appears to be inspired by her lifestyle.
“Phoebe and I together have a clothing range called Scallywags that we’re launching in about a week that’s a gender fluid, gender neutral brand,” she said.
As the hot new character Stella on hit Netflix show Orange Is The New Black, it seems Rose is everywhere at the moment.
She’s using that exposure to explain to the world what gender fluidity is.
Rose has also joined the discourse surrounding transgender people and publicly voiced her support for Caitlyn Jenner, who recently transitioned, and for her transgender co-star Laverne Cox.
“Between Orange with Laverne, the show Transparent, and Caitlyn Jenner, obviously we’re in the middle of something enormous a transgender movement. I’m just proud to be alive during this massive shift in the world,” she told the magazine.
