TRACE LYSETTE, JEN RICHARDS NOT SURPRISED JEFFREY TAMBOR HAS GIG: Jeffrey Tambor is among the relatively unscathed following the #MeToo movement. Tambor was fired from Transparent, where he played a transgender woman on the hit Amazon show, but has returned to Netflix's Arrested Development. Co-star Trace Lysette (one of the Tambor’s accusers) and activist Jen Richards (who has appeared on I Am Cait with Caitlyn Jenner), say they’re not surprised that he’s working, since "his accusers were primarily trans women.…I’m used to people not wanting to believe us and being at the bottom of the totem pole. So our word doesn’t carry weight the same way."

She adds that sometimes she craves more of an anonymous life. She’s been open about her struggles before.
