Activist Ashlee Marie Preston led organizing of the event from outside the company alongside the internal staff, most of whom are part of an employee resource group team dubbed Team Trans.

As INTO documented yesterday, the walk out quickly garnered support from several celebrities and Netflix stars, including Elliot Page, Dan Levy, Jonathan Van Ness, Lilly Wachowski, and more.

Several appeared in a video explaining the situation and expressing solidarity with the rally, while others took to social media to share their thoughts.
