Laverne Cox reflects on her recent appearance on "The Katie Show"

In a post on her Tumblr account, transgender advocate and actress Laverne Cox wrote about her recent appearance with Carmen Carrera on The Katie Show, hosted by Katie Couric. Laverne writes:

"It is my dream that by highlighting the deep humanity of trans people’s lives in the media, elevating actual trans voices to speak the truth of our lived experiences in ways that don’t sensationalize and objectify us, those human voices and stories can be a part of the disruption needed to end the disproportionate injustices that threaten so many trans people’s lives, particularly the lives of trans women of color."
