Actress Laverne Cox spoke with Fox News Latino's Carlos Anaya & Carlos Mayorga about the stigma that members of the transgender community too often face and the dangerously high rates of unemployment and violence facing transgender women of color. She also discusses the need for positive and accurate media representations of the trans community, something she is personally working to change. Laverne will be starring as a woman who is trans in Orange is the New Black, a new series on Netflix debuting later this month.
