Laverne Cox To Produce and Host Show On Trans Youth
An MTV documentary.
Laverne Cox is an actress, producer, writer, public speaker and general ray of sunshine. And on top of all that she puts us to shame in terms of how much good she's done in the world while we sit here, paralysed, in awe of her intellect and myriad achievements.
She's just announced her latest venture — hosting and executive producing Trans Teen: The Documentary for MTV which focuses on four transgender youths (between the ages of 14 and 24) across the US of A, and their stories.
Just add this to her already colossal list of work with and for the transgender community — which includes her documentary Free Cece about a trans African American woman in prison and a huge range of public speaking engagements at universities and LGBT-centric events.
Another LC project to look forward to? Her return as Sophia Burset in season 2 of Netflix's Orange is the New Black. This is Laverne's world and we're all blessed to be living in it.
