Will Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace appear in the next installment of Star Wars?
After Grace posted a photo of herself rocking a Kylo Ren mask, a friendly exchange transpired with the official Star Wars Twitter handle. The folks behind the account called Grace a #TrueTransForceRebel.
Now there is a petition to put Laura Jane in The Force Awakens’ sequel.
“Let’s make it official. Let’s join together and urge the forces behind Star Wars Episode 8 to give Laura Jane Grace a cameo in the film,” reads at statement on the petitions homepage, “making her the first openly trans person to be featured in the Star Wars franchise.”
“Putting LJG in the film would be a hugely inspirational message for young people in the queer community – that the galaxy is truly inclusive and that anyone can become one with the Force.”
You can sign the petition here.
