叠别测辞苍肠é, the legendary performer and reigning queen of pop, stands for empowerment and inclusivity while on her spellbinding Renaissance World Tour. At her performance in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the performer soared over the audience while saying, "Trans is beautiful." Laverne Cox, who started this hashtag in 2015, took to Instagram to express her emotions about 叠别测辞苍肠é's commitment to promoting diversity and embracing the beauty within the LGBTQ+ community. This powerful message was made when the Break My Soul singer spotted a sign hoisted high by the talented trans drag performer, Candace Persuasian.

叠别测辞苍肠é's tour, which bears the same name as her iconic album Renaissance, has been praised as a tribute to the Black Queer culture that paved the way for the evolution of house music. The record, which serves as an homage to both a musical subgenre and a social movement, continues to leave an impact on listeners a year after its release. 叠别测辞苍肠é herself can be seen suspended above the crowd in a video that Candace Persuasian posted on her TikTok profile, @candacepersuasian.

This spontaneous scene perfectly encapsulated the show's fundamental themes of empowerment, celebration, and unity. Laverne Cox, a well-known transgender actress, and activist, expressed sincere emotion in her response to the kind gesture. Cox, an unwavering advocate of the trans community, posted on Instagram to speak about the significance of 叠别测辞苍肠é's support, per Billboard. She opened up about her personal journey and the creation of the hashtag #TransIsBeautiful, a campaign that aimed to empower trans and nonbinary individuals by challenging conventional beauty standards.

Cox wrote in the caption, "I started the Hashing #TransIsBeautiful in 2015 to empower trans and nonbinary people to see our beauty beyond cisnormative beauty standards." She continued, "This wasn't about me. This was and is for the people. Seeing it empower trans folks globally to embrace our special, anointed beauty lights me up on the inside." Cox further said, "But hearing @Beyonce proclaim this trans-affirming message, I don't have words. I may have cried a little. Thank you @candacepersuasian for evoking this beautiful moment with your sign. Trans is indeed so beautiful. #beyonce #Renaissance #ClubRenaissance."

She emphasized the huge importance of a world celebrity accepting and spreading this message, enhancing the sense of empowerment for countless others all across the world.

According to Persuasian, the occasion was far more than just her; it was a recognition of the value and beauty of the entire Trans community. Numerous other people who perceived 叠别测辞苍肠é's declaration as a source of hope and affirmation resonated with her sentiment.

Persuasian wrote, "BEYONC? NOTICED ME!! She read my sign that says, “Trans is Beautiful!” Thank you @beyonce for continuing to inspiring me and creating safe spaces for Queer and trans folks!" Persuasion added, "Thank you @shopbeyonce for the free anniversary shirt! See me on their page! Thank you @jonathenmunoz for capturing this moment I’m so grateful for you!! #renaissanceworldtour #beyonce #transisbeautiful @parkwood."
