Teddy Quinlivan Pens a Moving Essay About Trans Rights (Vogue)
Model and activist Teddy Quinlivan has penned a powerful essay about Transgender rights in the wake of news that the administration is seeking to redefine gender by the sex organs one was born with. After sharing her personal story, Quinlivan outlines the human rights issues at stake. “This is the moment to educate those who don’t understand and to stress the importance of standing up for one another. This is the only way we can make progress on this issue,” she writes. “If you are transgender living in stealth this would be an amazing time to come out and shed light on your existence and humanity; the Trump administration plans on utilizing genetic testing to determine one’s birth sex, so hiding may not be an option for much longer anyways. If you are cisgender and are an ally to the trans community share your voice of support. Most importantly, this is the moment to exercise your right to vote. Vote for justice. Vote for your trans, intersex, and non-binary friends. Vote for the kid in your school who was bullied. Vote because it’s transgender freedoms now and it could be yours next.

’90s Movie Clueless Is Getting Remade (Variety)
The fashionable ’90s teen movie Clueless is getting remade! So far the film has a producer and a writer attached. No word yet on who will play the central role of Cher Horowitz, nor is there any news of who will be in charge of the costumes. Considering fashion — specifically Calvin Klein and Alaïa — played such a central role in making the original a classic, its safe to say that the clothes the second time around need to knock it out of the park.
