ABOU-SABE: So between Ian, Asher, and Adam, whom could you personally relate most to?

MONAGHAN: I mean, that’s always difficult because with every character you play you’re always trying to put facets of yourself into those characters. I think Asher, at the beginning of The Giver, when he’s goofy and a little bit of a rule-breaker, a little bit of a jokester, I align with him. But then he kind of transforms throughout the movie and becomes someone I don’t necessarily relate to. I relate to Adam McCormick’s sensitivity. He’s more quiet and introverted, and I definitely have those moments as well.

The basis of most arguments against trans people is that we are not who we say we are, that we are always and only the gender that we were assigned at birth. And so much of that is about having a sense of certainty around gender, that when you were born with a certain set of genitalia, then that must dictate your entire life, and the reality is that that’s not trueA lot of people are not comfortable with that, because then that means they have to begin to question who they are.- Laverne Cox

I don’t want other people to decide who I am. I want to decide that for myself. I want to avoid becoming something too styled and too ‘done’ and too generic. You see people as they go through their career and they just become more and more like everyone else.

"I’m useless at going on dates. One guy took me to a bar once and I lasted half an hour before I had to ring my mum to get me out of there. I find it awkward and I don’t know the rules."

It all works. Everyone knows where they belong. Except for  m e .
