Pedro Pascal shares pro-LGBTIQ+ message as US clamps down on trans rights

Pedro Pascal has shown his support for the LGBT community, posting several snaps of the rainbow and transgender flag to his Instagram account.

Referencing Bob Dylan's 1962 civil rights anthem, The Mandalorian star wrote: "The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind. #LGBTQIA."

Pascal's post of support comes as the US continues to curb transgender rights, with Florida lawmakers moving to take 'emergency jurisdiction' of transgender youths who are 'at risk' of receiving gender-affirming healthcare, such as puberty blockers or hormone therapy.


According to Pink News, Republican lawmakers filed SB 254 on March 3, a law that could see transgender kids removed from their parents' care if their guardians are supportive of them getting gender-affirming treatment.

The bill has been met with backlash.

Former activist and politician Carlos Guillermo Smith took to Twitter to share his disbelief.


"I can’t believe I’m writing this,” he wrote.

"A new Florida bill will tell courts to seize trans children away from their supportive parents if those parents provide or are ‘at risk’ of providing them life-saving care."

Pascal's post, while it makes no reference to the latest anti-trans legislation in the US, had come as a breath of fresh air for some.


So far, his post has garnered more than one million likes in seven hours (at time of writing), with many taking to the comments to praise the Game of Thrones star for his allyship.

One user said: "In Pedro we trust."

A second commented: "From the mom of a trans kid, thank you!"

A third chimed in with: "This is the way!"


Pascal has previously shown his support for the LGBT community by simply being the best big brother anyone could ask for: loving, accepting, and full of grace.

The Last of Us star took to social media in 2021 to congratulate and introduce his sister to the rest of the world, Lux Pascal, who had just come out as a transgender woman.

And a freakin' chic one at that, judging by the Ya magazine cover the Game of Thrones star shared on Instagram.


Doing exactly what a fab big brother should do, Pascal shared the cover with an adorable caption: As for Pascal, he is very clearly a proud older brother. He posted a photo of Lux’s cover on Instagram with the caption, "Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux."

Translation: "My sister, my heart, our Lux."

Now that’s how you pull off being an absolute champion and a legend of a big brother if you ask us.
