LAVERNE COX MAKES HISTORY WITH DAYTIME CREATIVE ARTS EMMY WIN!!!

“The 42nd Annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards were presented yesterday and transgender advocate and actress Laverne Cox made history when the Logo special she hosted and executive produced,Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word, won the Emmy in Outstanding Special Class Special. Cox is the first trans woman to win an Emmy as an Executive Producer and The T Word is the first trans documentary to win an Emmy.

Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word looks at the lives of seven trans youth, who range from ages 12 – 24, and explores their individual journeys to overcome challenges such as bullying and anti-transgender violence. The documentary premiered on Logo and MTV last October the day after Laverne and members of the cast lit the Empire State Building purple for GLAAD’s #spiritday to support LGBT youth. You can still watch the full documentary online.”
