With changing times, Hollywood is becoming more inclusive than ever to make room for everyone. People of almost every race, culture, religion, and sexual orientation are getting recognition for their talents.

Is Hailie Sahar Transgender?

For as long as she can remember, Hailie Sahar- born as a boy, felt like she wasn’t in the right body. Since a very young age, she would wish to change into a girl magically.

Growing up in a religiously strict family, Hailie could never express herself verbally to anyone. For a very long time, even she didn't have an understanding of her true self. It was only after she saw the film Paris Is Burning; she found her truth about who she was.

Since she gained courage and inspiration from a film, Hailie became attracted to art, music, and movies. But, her journey in the industry was not comfortable. She was harassed and misbehaved in many auditions and often rejected at the last moment just because of her sexual orientation.

But, her hard work and persistence paid off as she got cast as one of the leads on FX's musical drama Pose. As the show earned six Emmy nominations after its first season in 2019, Hailie became a household name. Most recently, the actress appeared in The Fosters' spin-off, Good Trouble.
