About Hunter Schafer

Fashion model Hunter Schafer made her big acting debut in 2019 on HBO’s Euphoria, quickly becoming a fan-favorite on the show. Fighting for the rights of LGBTQ+ community members since a young age, Hunter is quickly becoming a shining star among the new generation of trans and queer gen-z kids who are changing the conversation about gender, and media. In a conversation with Variety in June, Hunter discussed the role that social media played in her transition, and how platforms like YouTube allowed her to see herself in the transition timelines of others. Now with 1M+ followers on Instagram, she continues to be an outspoken advocate of LGBTQ+ equality and representation.
