Mother Elektra Abundance quickly became a breakout on the FX series Pose. Her strong will and cutting quips makes her a scene stealer, even when she’s not trying.
Pose is such an important show for LGBTQIA+ representation. It’s the first network primetime series to have a majority transgender cast.
Dominique Jackson brings such life to Elekra its hard to believe she hasn’t been nominated for an Emmy yet. I’m hoping academy members take note of her performances this past season and give her the recognition she deserves. That’s also my hope for a lot of the cast members this year.
But enough of me. In honor of Pride month, I wanted to share one of my favorite Elektra moments, of which there are many.
