Tired: J.K. Rowling pledging her support for a woman with “absolutist” anti-trans views. Wired: Buffy actor Anthony Stewart-Head quietly going above and beyond for his trans fans.
Stewart-Head, who played Buffy’s watcher Giles in the cult series, reportedly reached out a young fan after he came out as trans in 2015. He’d heard that Jay Hulme, a poet, was “having a hard time” after coming out.
Hulme was also “kind of sad” that all the photos he’d taken with the actor at fan conventions were signed to his dead name, and showed him with long hair and no chest binder.
“Anthony and his wonderful wife Sarah reached out and invited me to come to their farm for the day,” Hulme wrote in a Twitter thread.
