'Orange is the New Black's Laverne Cox Will Spotlight Trans Youth In 'The T Word' Documentary!

Laverne Cox is getting the word out about transgender youth in a brand new one-hour documentary, Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word!

“For many of us, the ‘T’ in LGBT means more than transgender, it also means truth,” Laverne said in a statement (via Variety). “The cast members in this documentary are fearlessly living their truths and in sharing their stories will send the message to other trans youth that it’s okay to be who you are.”

Following the documentary, Logo and will host an hour-long Trans Forum where Laverne and MTV news correspondent SuChin Pak will further discuss transgender issues and answer questions from audience members and from those on social media.

Make sure to tune into MTV and Logo on Friday (October 17) to watch the special!

    BOYCOTT laverne cox! He defended a child molester/pedo/murderer! Not only once, but twice! TWO different people. Both guilty of mrudering and raping children!
    He doesn’t care and he NEVER apologized! It went unnoticed by mainstream media of course because the victims are black girls, as usual!
    I WILL NEVER support ANYTHING this sick piece of shit does! Don’t watch Orange is the new black! If you do, you are just as guilty as laverne.

  • Laverne aka SCUM

    And JJ, He is not a She, so no, it’s not “actress”, it’s acTOR. Get it right.
    He will never be a woman. It takes more than chopping off your d*ck (note that he hasn’t even done that!), it’s in the DNA: You cannot change your DNA.
    I take offense to him appropriating (stealing) MY sex/gender. You can’t just decide to be a woman, just like you can’t decide being of a different race. You are or you aren’t. It’s simple.

  • Laverne aka SCUM

    This sorry excuse and waste of space is a sick perverted freak! He has shown that more than once! He has gone on record to defend child rapists and murderers and has NOT apologized and has gotten away with it because the victims are BLACK GIRLS, and you know you can get away with sick sh*t if your victims are black females because of zero f*cks given but let a white MAN go on cover of Elle or Cosmo saying he is just as much female as them and all hell will break loose!

  • Laverne aka SCUM

    No way would a white transgendered get the amount of attention laverne has gotten! White women would NOT stand for it! And no way would a white trans be able to go on record and defend sick perverts like laverne, his a*s would have gotten fired and kicked out of Hollywood, blacklisted so fast you wouldn’t have time to blink, let alone know what happened.
    Yet again we see what black males in dresses can get away with when it comes to insulting, humiliating, degrading, black WOMEN. Business as usual but wait until judgment day and your sorry a*s will wish He had done right by us.

    Age is a concern as choices are usually made at an age after puberty, and some decisions are made before.
