Trans kids send adorable drawings to Emma Watson

Emma Watson recently came out in support of trans rights and now kids are thanking her.

Ahead of the Gender Recognition Act consultation in the UK, the British actress posted a photo of herself on Twitter wearing a white t-shirt. The shirt read ‘Trans rights are human rights’.

Many trans people at the time thanked Watson for the statement. The GRA consultation has subjected trans people to a deluge of insults and scare-stories, which many of them have found emotionally distressing.

So in thanks, trans advocate and Twitter user FierceMum shared an adorable thread from trans kids thanking the Harry Potter star for her support.

The tweet reads: ‘Trans children were overjoyed this week to see @EmmaWatson come out for trans equality. Trans kids around the world are having a rought time & visible allies matter. Trans kids& siblings from around world say thank you.’

FierceMum also notes: ‘On a normal day we would have a bunch of pictures from American trans kids. But their families are busy defending their right to exist. Trans kids needs allies. They need support. They need to know the world cares. #SupportTransKids’

This is good news for many transgender-supporting families. Earlier this week, a leaked memo from President Trump revealed plans to legislate trans identities out of existence in the US.
