Ryan Murphy Is Donating All Pose Profits to LGBT Charities

Ryan Murphy is now making a big commitment to charity — and he is encouraging others to do the same.

The cocreator of Pose announced Wednesday on Twitter that he will donate all profits from the FX series to LGBT groups.

Murphy added that he will announce each charity on social media over the next two weeks, in order to help promote each’s work supporting transgender people and the larger LGBT community.

The first announced is the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, which “works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence.”

Moreover, Murphy encouraged his followers to tweet about LGBT groups they support. Showing his commitment, Murphy then retweeted The Advocate‘s editor-in-chief, Lucas Grindley, after he highlighted the work of Extraordinary Families, an LGBT-inclusive nonprofit that supports foster and adopted children.

Cocreated by Murphy and Steven Canals, Pose is set in 1987, and centers on trans women in New York City’s ballroom scene. The show has cast the most transgender actors as series regulars in television history: MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar, and Angelica Ross. The series also features the talents of Billy Porter, Evan Peters, Kate Mara, and James Van Der Beek.

Pose premieres June 3 on FX. Watch the trailer, which dropped last week, below.
