Ruby Rose is slowly becoming a household name in the States and beyond thanks to her appearance in the third season of Orange is the New Black. Yet the Australian actress, model and TV personality is making just as big of an impact through her views on gender identity -- a hot topic right now. Ruby Rose has recently shared a beautiful short film that captures her experience with gender fluidity.

Dubbed Break Free, the short film captures Ruby Rose as she transitions from a woman to a man in a dramatic way. She told Vanity Fair, "This video is talking about how as soon as I get to take that hair off, and as soon as I get to take that makeup off, and as soon as I get to be 100% what I would be, which is definitely more boyish, I’m just freer and I’m happy."
