RCT recently caught up with Laverne Cox, star of the hit T.V. show Orange Is The New Black. At the Television Advocacy Awards in West Hollywood, California, she had a lot of valuable info to share with us regarding everything from violence against transgender people to fashion and beauty:
What is Laverne Cox passionate about in the realm of advocacy?
“Oh, so many things…” she says. Besides working with Global Citizen to promote education for girls globally, she also helps with many transgender causes such as the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs. About fashion she says, “I’m not a season girl! I’m not really a trend girl, I don’t really follow trends…but I’m really interested in being a little edgier, a little more fashion forward.” You go girl!
