Laverne Cox on Totally Biased

So I’m not sure if anyone else has watched the new netflix show Orange is the New Black, but it’s a great show that is based on Piper Kerman’s memoirs from her time in a women’s prison. The show also stars Laverne Cox and she is the first African American transgender woman to star in a TV series. This is a really interesting interview that she did on Totally Biased where she talks about her role models and her life experiences as she went through the transition to becoming biologically female. I thought it fit is really well with our readings for this week on the social constructions of gender and is definitely worth watching.
