NASA Asked to Name Planet After Trans Artist

SOPHIE-PLANET

SOPHIE died trying to watch the moon, so the trans community is trying to give her a planet.

SOPHIE was trying to see the first full moon of the year when she fell from a ladder and tragically died in the early hours of 30 January. She was just 34.

After the death of the artist, Christian Arroyo created a petition asking NASA to rename the planet TOI 1338 b in her honour.

He explained how she was an influence for the young LGBTQ+ community.

“SOPHIE was a highly influential singer, songwriter, and producer who was a great inspiration to the LGBTQIA+ community,” the petition reads. “Her messages, actions, and music left an insurmountable impression on many LGBTQIA+ individuals.”
