Emmy Award-winning actress and LGBTQ advocate Laverne Cox is best known for her groundbreaking role as Sophia Burset on the TV series Orange is the New Black. The first transgender woman of color to have a leading role on a mainstream scripted television show, Cox tells her own story—growing up in Mobile, Alabama, moving to New York City, and finding the courage to step into womanhood—to illustrate the unique challenges faced by the transgender community. Cox shares her views on race, class, and gender equality, communicating a powerful message of inner strength and self-acceptance.

Cal Performances’ Speaker Series is a season-long series of presentations by some of the leading creative and intellectual voices of our time—thinkers, activists, strategists, satirists, journalists, and pioneers at the leading edge of culture and politics.
