Hunter Schafer, a transgender activist and star of the TV show “Euphoria,” revealed in a recent interview with GQ that she is no longer inclined to portray transgender characters on screen.

Diverse roles


Despite gaining recognition for her role as Jules in the popular HBO series, Schafer is now eager to explore diverse roles and move away from having her transgender identity dominate every discussion about her work.

Transsexual Actress


“It has not just happened naturally by any means. If I let it happen, it would still be giving ‘Transsexual Actress’ before every article ever,” Schafer said.



“As soon as I say it, it gets blastoff,” Schafer added.

While to learn


“It took a while to learn that and it also took a while to learn that I don’t want to be [reduced to] that, and I find it ultimately demeaning to me and what I want to do. Especially after high school, I was sick of talking about it. I worked so hard to get to where I am, past these really hard points in my transition, and now I just want to be a girl and finally move on.”

It’s a privilege


“It’s a privilege, but it’s been very intentional,” the “Euphoria” star continued. “I’ve gotten offered tons of trans roles, and I just don’t want to do it. I don’t want to talk about it.”



Schafer discussed how her fame has brought about a greater sense of accountability.

Most famous trans


“I know for a fact that I’m one of the most famous trans people in media right now, and I do feel a sense of responsibility, and maybe a little bit of guilt, for not being more of a spokesperson,” Schafer told the outlet.



“But ultimately, I really do believe that not making it the centerpiece to what I’m doing will allow me to get further. And I think getting further and doing awesome sh**, in the interest of ‘the movement,’ will be way more helpful than talking about it all the time.”

Transgender celebrities


In contrast to other transgender celebrities, Schafer emphasized that she is not concerned with the opinions of others.

Lost interest


“I’ve kind of lost interest in achieving some sort of utopia,” the “Euphoria” star told GQ.

People hating


“I am totally cool with people hating me for being trans or calling me a man. I am not interested in trying to convince them anymore. As long as you’re staying in your lane—work. Work! Do that. And I’m going to be over here with people I love.”
