MadameNoire Featured Video


MadameNoire is celebrating Women’s History Month, but this is not your typical women’s rights piece — focusing on feminists, womanists and wonder women who have changed the world.

This is especially for trans women of color, as many trans advocates would put it. This list highlights both famous and significant trans women of color who are paving the way for more trans women of color to come!
