OITNB Star Laverne Cox's New Documentary Follows Transgender Youth

Orange Is the New Black's Laverne Cox stars in the trailer for her upcoming documentary about transgender youth, Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word. "We live in a world where people are often judged for being different," she says, "but this is a celebration of those differences, as well as how we're the same." The film follows the lives of seven transgender Americans between 12 and 24 years old, diving into the challenges and inspiration they face when it comes to school, dating, family life, and getting to know themselves. The documentary premieres on MTV and Logo TV on Oct. 17.
