During a speech at the GLSEN Respect Awards, Yara Shahidi said

We should all feel deserved and supported in expressing our right to being our whole selves, limited by nothing regardless of ethnicity, gender, identity, sexuality, ability, religion or any other identity that we choose.[…] It is dangerous to promote an identity blind narrative. […] We must not separate ourselves from each community. We must be one.
