This afternoon at 3PM EST, tune into Katie Couric’s “Katie” as she meets with two of the transgender community's advocates, who are also celebrities with brightly shining stars: Carmen Carrera and Laverne Cox.

Carmen, a model and television personality, recently made headlines when a petition began circulating to have Carmen named Victoria’s Secret’s first trans Angel. The petition garnered more than 45,000 signatures.

Actress, writer, producer, and long-time advocate Laverne Cox has made a big splash playing Sophia Burset on the breakout hit, “Orange is the New Black.” Laverne’s latest endeavor continues to combine advocacy with her talent, as she is co-producing “FREE CECE,” a documentary detailing CeCe McDonald’s experiences. GLAAD and Laverne have worked together on a variety of past projects, including on the panel, Growing Visibility: Transgender People in the Media.

Tune in this afternoon at 3PM EST!
