Jeffrey Tambor poses with the trans parent who inspired Transparent

Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor has posed for a photo with the woman who inspired the series.

The creator of the Amazon show, Jill Soloway, has previously spoken about how the show is a semi-autobiographical story based on the transition of her own parent from male to female.

When accepting awards on behalf of the series, Soloway has often spoken about her Moppa – an invented word for transgender parent also used to refer to Tambor’s character in the series.

Her real-life Moppa appeared in public for the first time this week, at a White House LGBT reception where the first episode of the show’s second series was aired.

The White House’s LGBT Artists Champions of Change event yesterday was part of a programme recognising the achievements of activists on a range of issues.

Soloway shared a picture of Tambor and her parent, writing: “Moppa and Moppa at the White House.”

The writer also posted a picture of her Moppa meeting with Senior Advisor to the President, Valerie Jarrett.
