Since her groundbreaking Time magazine cover and the premiere of Season 2 of “Orange is the New Black”, Laverne Cox’s star has risen higher than ever. And she continues to exploit it with the best of intentions, this week choosing to return to Katie Couric’s show following a previous interview which rightly generated a whole load of controversy following Couric’s invasive line of questioning.
Cox’s reaction was perfect at the time, but this just makes it even better. Watch her appearance below, and see how she truly does possess the poise and intelligence to build bridges and promote understanding where it is sorely lacking. Have no doubt about it – if we really are at a transgender tipping point, there could be nobody better suited to guide us safely over the edge than Laverne Cox.
