As reported by Pink News, Watson expressed support for the trans community via social media earlier today.
The tweet and IG post included a snap of Watson in a t-shirt saying “Trans rights are human rights.” Watson tagged several LGBTQ+ charities in the post, including Stonewall and trans children’s charity Mermaids.
Many have already expressed gratitude for Watson’s post on social media.
Mermaids tweeted “THANK YOU from all the trans kids that don’t have a voice! ❤️❤️❤️.”
Watson has 48 million followers on Instagram, just shy of 29 million on Twitter.
Last year, Watson became the first performer to receive the MTV Movie Awards’ new gender-neutral Best Actor Prize.
Accepting the award, she said: “Empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits. This is very meaningful to me, both to be winning the award and to be receiving it from you in such an inclusive, patient and loving way.”
