About Jen Richards

Jen Richards is using her platform to disprove stereotypes, stigmas and misconceptions about trans people. She enjoyed an exciting 2019 when she was cast as a main character in the HBO show Mrs. Fletcher, portraying Margo, a transgender writing teacher. Jen initially looked at the character and felt it was too inauthentic, relying on overplayed tropes and gender-norms. She pushed to make the character more authentic and true to her story and experiences, resulting in her performance being met with widespread acclaim. Her 65K+ combined Twitter and Instagram regularly see Jen being unapologetically herself, tweeting out her thoughts and gramming her best life.
