Including her brother, Pedro Pascal.

Lux Pascal shared with the world today that she is a trans woman in Ya magazine, and I couldn’t be happier for her! The actor revealed in an interview with Revista Ya that she started hormone treatments back in July and is studying acting at Juilliard School in New York City.

In a translation of the Chilean publication from People‘s Ale Russian, Lux Pascal talked about the support she received from her family, including The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal.

“My transition has been something that’s very natural for everyone in my family,” Lux said. “It’s almost something that they expected to happen.”

Pedro Pascal has been sharing support for his sister online all day as well! From first posting Lux’s article with an Instagram caption stating “Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux” to liking tweets praising Lux and her bravery, he’s clearly very proud of his younger sister and it does make me proud to be a fan of his.

It’s been beautiful to see the warm reception that Lux Pascal has been receiving on Twitter today.

Lux Pascal first came out to her family as nonbinary before proudly saying she’s a woman, but she still believes in standing up for the nonbinary community and is using her voice and platform as an activist.

“Moving through the world as a woman is much more simple for me, but I still advocate for nonbinary identities to have a space in society,” she explained.

Extremely happy for Lux Pascal and am ready for everything she’s going to bring to this world. Much love!
