Cox meets Jenner

Makes Statement

Cox and Jenner meet after months of contact via phone and Twitter.

I was deeply moved by About Bruce and Caitlyn’s family’s very really struggle with this change and the deep love and devotion that they have for Caitlyn was deeply moving. I cried many, many times watching it.

Going through life, you try to cover and hide, but it doesn’t really work. I said no initially, thought about it, and said no again. But I’m a black transgender woman. I felt this could be really powerful for the communities that I represent. Black women are not often told that we’re beautiful unless we align with certain standards. Trans women certainly are not told we’re beautiful. Seeing a black transgender woman embracing and loving everything about herself might be inspiring to some other folks. There’s beauty in the things we think are imperfect. That sounds very cliché, but it’s true.

Laverne Cox interview


Williams interviews Laverne Cox and questions her about being a transgender woman and her new show Orange Is The New Black.

Transgender very basically means that the gender you identify as is different than what you were assigned at birth very simple. Transgender people’s experiences are really different. It’s an individual experience, there’s no one blanket transgender experience. It’s really about listening to individuals in terms of who they are and accepting people on their own terms.
