  3. Oaklanders School ‘Real World’ Cast on
Transgender Identity

Oaklanders keep it real. And last night, almost 2 million viewers watched as five queer people of color from the Town schooled the cast of MTV’s Real World: Ex-Plosion on a topic that’s been steadily garnering more media attention: transgender identity.
The subject came up around 25-year-old cast member Ari Fitz (who goes by Arielle Scott on the show), a black lesbian, androgynous model, and horror filmmaker who was born in Vallejo and most recently lived in Oakland.
Halfway into taping the show — which was filmed in San Francisco last summer and is currently airing on Wednesday nights — rumors about Fitz being a transgender woman surfaced on the Internet and among cast members. Her initial reaction to the rumor — which was false — was negative. “I don’t want to be trans,” she says during last night’s episode, expressing that she felt the misidentification threatened her lesbian identity.
But Fitz feels uneasy about her feelings, so she invites five of her Oakland friends — Kingston Farady, Krys Freeman, Amaryllis DeJesus Moleski, Chaney Turner, and Charleen “Chikun” Caabay, who all embody various gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations — to talk her through her feelings, and help educate her fellow cast members at the same time.

    ***We started off as a small dance party for radical queers to come let loose. The party started off in SF but has relocated to Oakland. Our home is Oakland. We want to maintain this party as a safe space. We aim to prioritize and support: queers, women, people of color, trans people who are also: DJs, performers, vendors, and different organizations. We raised over $30,000 for causes ranging from housing rights to supporting the NJ4.***
