In a very special edition of So POPular!, I sat down with Laverne Cox, where we discussed everything from her career in Hollywood, her visibility as a trans actress and advocate, the issues facing the trans community, and of course season three of her hit Netflix series, Orange is The New Black.
What struck me most about my conversation with Laverne Cox was how forthcoming she was about her journey from Mobile, Alabama, to the Hollywood, and how that visibility has impacted her life, both positively and negatively. I was also humbled to have created a space of my own, my own show centering popular culture, and share that space with another trans woman who is experiencing a major moment in popular culture.
