“When and where I enter, in the quiet undisputed dignity of my womanhood, without violence, and without suing or special patronage, then and there… the whole race enters.” – Anna Julia Cooper
Laverne Cox may not see herself as a fearless trailblazer for the Black and trans communities, but that is exactly what she is. From our first introduction to her on VH1′s I Want To Work For Diddy to her most recent role as one of the stars of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, Cox has epitomized those poignant words uttered by our ancestor Anna Julia Cooper. The trajectory of Cox’s life is one of violence and special patronage, but also one of dignity and barrier breaking.
As a Black trans woman, Cox has had a tough row to hoe in a society that has yet to come to terms with the existence of transgender people. While much progress has been made in the fight for transgender equality, the journey is far from over. Black trans women like Cox, Isis King, and Monica Beverly Hills have made historic strides in the world of entertainment, but those steps have coincided with the continued discrimination and violence that many Black trans women face in their everyday lives. Like Cox’s own history of harassment, Black trans women experience high rates of street harassment, domestic violence, and serial killing. I mention this not to portray the Black trans community as one solely on the receiving end of violence, but to illuminate on the complex and diversified existence of Black trans women like Cox. It is a testament to her own inner resolve and determination that she has pressed on in spite of the realities of a world that would rather she not.
Before turning heads as Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black, Cox became the first Black trans woman to produce and star in her own TV show, TRANSform Me. Cox, like fellow Black actress Kerry Washington, mixes art and activism. Her role in Hollywood is not as one who solely takes on roles and performs in projects, but also one who advocates and raises awareness for her community. I had the pleasure of meeting Cox, last year, at the National Black Justice Coalition’s annual Out on the Hill leadership summit for Black LGBT leaders. Cox moderated a historic Black Trans Women town hall that foregrounded the experiences of Black trans women. It was inspiring to see a woman who I know is dedicated to both her craft and her community. Continue reading
Nessa girl what kind of new-fangled swap meet foolishness is this? Here it is Jay-Z is practically giving away albums in conjunction with Samsung and taking the charts by storm and Ciara after dismal record sales is now selling her’s on Groupon. The real gag is Ciara and her team lack confidence that anyone will buy it, so they are not only giving you her latest album, but an additional best of Ciara cd as well. That’s right, you will get two Cd’s on Groupon for $14. Perhaps Ciara & Kerri Hilson should form a small girl group. Hey, Ciara has not reached rock bottom just yet. Don’t act like y’all don’t remember when Lil Kim was selling music on PayPal. Girl Bye! Catch these T’s Continue reading
Chile is is an ole nasty cup of tea that came across my desk this morning. However, I can’t promise you that I am buying it. Rumors are swirling that Hollywood Exes is getting an Atlanta Spinoff and Tameka Raymond and Cee-Lo’s ex wife Christina Johnson are on the cast. VH1 has yet to issue any sort of official correspondence regarding this, but Star Magazine is reporting it. Star Magazine is also reporting that they are still trying to assemble the remaining cast.
