Laverne Cox has truly influenced a generation through her advocacy and activism and her visibility as an actress. Her latest project “Trans Teen: The Documentary” will be airing this upcoming fall. According to a press release,

This one-hour documentary will take viewers inside the lives of four trans youth –- young people who, until recently, may not have even felt safe sharing their lives with others. Ranging in age from 14 to 24 and hailing from diverse neighborhoods across America, each of the four cast members has their own unique story to tell. But this isn’t a story about being an “other” –- it’s about being human. They all share the courage and determination to live their lives authentically, as the person they were meant to be. With varying levels of parental and social support, they will share their brave journeys as they learn to overcome challenges like intolerance, bullying and general confusion about who and what they are.

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this one.
