University Speaker Series: Dominique Jackson
November 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
From fleeing persecution as a transgender woman in her home country of Trinidad and Tobago to starring in television hits, Dominique Jackson has seen it all. After experiencing homelessness and rejection from her own family, Jackson has used her success to shed light on the challenges transgender women like herself too often face.
Jackson stars in Pose, an FX television series about the African American and Latinx LGBTQ+ gender-nonconforming ballroom culture scene in the 1980s and 1990s. For Jackson, her character is more than just someone she plays in front of the cameras. She is a representation of what Jackson and many transgender women go through when they lose their families after coming out.
