Actor Jeffrey Tambor won the Best Lead Actor in a Comedy award at the 2015 Emmys in Los Angeles on Sunday.
As part of his speech, he paid tribute to transgender Americans.
“I had a teacher who you used to say, ‘When you act, you have to act as if your life depends on it,'” Tambor said. “And now I’ve been given the opportunity to act because people’s lives depend on it.”
In Transparent, Tambor plays Maura Pfefferman, a trans woman who is struggling to come to terms with her new identity while her family tries to reconcile themselves to the fact that their former father is now one of their mothers.
“I’d like to dedicate my performance and this award to the transgender community,” the actor said. “Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your stories. Thank you for your inspiration. Thank you for letting us be part of the change. God bless you.”

Trump makes pitch on Catholic TV: ‘Catholics like their Second Amendment so I saved the Second Amendment’
President Donald Trump this week made a pitch to Catholic voters based on his assertion that he "saved the Second Amendment."
In a Tuesday interview with the Catholic TV network EWTV, correspondent Tracy Sabol asked Trump if he had a message for Catholic voters.
"Well, I think anybody having to do with, frankly, religion, but certainly the Catholic Church, you have to be with President Trump when it comes to pro-life, when it comes to all of the things, these people are going to take all of your rights away, including Second Amendment," the president said, "because, you know, Catholics like their Second Amendment. So I saved the Second Amendment."
‘I don’t even know where to start’: CNN analyst tears into Trump’s plan to give re-nomination speech at White House
On CNN Wednesday, CNN analyst Dana Bash slammed President Donald Trump's new plan to give the GOP re-nomination speech at the White House.
"I mean, I don't even know where to start," said Bash. "There is a law called the Hatch Act, where it says that you're not supposed to politic from government grounds. The president is exempt from that, so it may be legal grounds for him to stand on, relatively firmly, to do this at the White House. There are questions about the aides that are working for him to do it. But let's just talk about whether it's appropriate."
Historian who predicted Trump’s upset 2016 win now says he’s going to crash and burn in 2020
Allan Lichtman, a political historian who teaches at American University in Washington, D.C., became famous for correctly predicting President Donald Trump's upset win four years ago.
But in a new interview with The New York Times, Lichtman makes the case that Trump appears very unlikely to win a second term as the country has been racked for months by the coronavirus pandemic, high unemployment, and civil unrest.
