Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal celebrates magazine cover debut with his Trans Sister
Star Wars: The Mandalorian Star Pedro Pascal posted a delightfully touching message to his sister Lux Pascal on Instagram in honor of Lux’s debut on the cover of Chilean magazine Revista Ya.
In the magazine, Pascal first appeared in public as a trans woman. She had previously told her family that she was not binary, but realized that moving around the world as a woman was much easier for me. But I still advocate for non-binary identity to exist in society.
Pascal, a 28-year-old actor, like her older brother Pedro (she is currently studying acting at Juilliard), spoke of the importance of public trans-voices: We need trans activists who are good, smart, informed and can be strong. voices against transphobia, homophobia and racism. I had a certain privilege because I was able to make my transition hidden and supported. The LGBTQ + equality movement is spearheaded by the most marginalized voices, those who in the end had nothing to lose because they were already deprived of everything. I was very lucky.
Pascal went on to point out, I feel many will say that I am accommodating the discourse of underprivileged trans women, trans sex workers, or transgender people who don’t have the money or help to buy their hormones or transition as they want. But I have a connection with them. I call them sisters because I feel them like this: Her brother Pedro shared his sister’s cover on his Instagram, adding, My sister, my heart, our Lux.
Pascal also highlighted her brother’s role in her journey, saying that he was an important part of it. He is also an artist and served as a guide for me. He was one of the first to give me the tools that started. She explained that when she first opened up to her brother, he asked me how I felt because I remember he was a little worried. However, after that he told her: Great, this is incredible.
Lux Pascal has appeared on the Chilean TV show Los 80, as well as La Jauría on Amazong Prime, and her brother’s Narcos series on Netflix.
