How Euphoria star and trans icon Hunter Schafer fought a transphobic bathroom bill – and won
When HBO’s Euphoria landed on our screens in 2019, it did that rare thing that a good show is wont to do: made the entire cast famous, almost overnight, and none more so than Hunter Schafer.
It was the 21-year-old’s first-ever acting role, and Schafer’s portrayal of Jules was another rare thing: a trans actor playing a trans role.
But while Schafer was new to acting, they were not new to the spotlight. She’s modelled for fashion houses including Dior, Miu Miu, Calvin Klein and Vera Wang; met Hilary Clinton in 2017, when she was named one of Teen Vogue’s 21 under 21; and in the same year was a plaintiff in an ACLU lawsuit against an anti-trans bathroom bill in North Carolina.
