Murphy praised Janet Mock, the first transgender woman of color to direct a TV show with this week's episode, which she also wrote, at a screening of her episode on Tuesday night. Murphy called the making of Pose "very moving" that he decided to donate his profits from the FX seires to trans and LGBTQ non-profit organizations. It was Murphy's idea to have Mock direct an episode after reading her memoir. “Directing was never on my list of things,” she said. “I didn’t think it was a possibility.” ALSO: Why Murphy purposefully took a back seat on Pose.
