Trans kids are sending Emma Watson drawings to thank her for supporting their rights
Transgender children are sending Emma Watson a wave of adorable drawings to say thank you for supporting their rights, after the Beauty and the Beast star and influential women’s rights advocate spoke out in favour of trans rights.
Last Thursday (October 18), the UN Women Goodwill ambassador shared a photo of herself wearing a “Trans Rights are Human Rights” t-shirt photo on social media, as proposed transgender rights reforms in the UK continue to face backlash.
Watson tagged transgender groups including children’s charity Mermaids in her message, sparking criticism from anti-transgender feminists in comments to the post and on online forums. But the negativity has been washed aside by the amazing response from trans kids.
The drawings were submitted by trans kids and their relatives from across the world, and shared on Twitter by blogger @FierceMum, the mother of a transgender girl.
Some of the drawings include tributes to Watson’s famous Harry Potter and Beauty and the Beast characters.
Others included rainbows and messages of thanks.
Others just took a more personal approach.
