Laverne Cox Explains Trans People Are Exhausted By Anti Trans Hate

The “Orange Is the New Black” actress recently went on MSNBC to talk about her long history of trans advocacy, how trans rights and reproductive rights are connected, and why censorship can’t stop kids from being trans. At the beginning of Cox’s appearance on the news network’s Morning Joe, she mentioned that the first protest she had ever been to was in 2001, when Amanda Milan, a 25-year-old trans woman and sex worker, was killed in front of a New York bus terminal by two men. Cox said she and many other trans people are exhausted with the anti-trans rhetoric and discrimination against the community.
