When Laverne Cox rose to fame as Sophia Bursett on Netflix’s “Orange in the New Black,” she made history by becoming the first publicly transgender person to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 2014. His list of successes since then has made him one of the most recognized trans people in Hollywood. Now, Cox continues to use that platform to broaden other trans voices as executive of Sam Feders’ Netflix documentary, titled “Disclosure,” about the history of trans representation in film and television, releasing on June 19.

Not only was Doc the whole cast of transgender, Federer even implemented a program that required that a non-trans crew member be hired to consent to the training of trans people in business. “The idea is to cultivate different, trans talent that can work behind the scenes in the industry,” Cox said in today’s episode. Diversity And the iHart podcast “The Big Ticket”.

It’s a model he hopes to bring to future projects. “I think we can start as an industry to think,‘ How Do we bring people from different backgrounds and experiences? He said. “Train them. All they need is not just actors, but directors, grips and lighting designers and everything that happens in the film industry. It makes a difference. “

Diversity Black Lives Matter’s protest in response to George Floyd’s death spread to the United States, just days after the Cox’s Bazar home invasion in Los Angeles.

How are you coping now?

I live alone. I’m alone; I don’t have a housemaid. I was left alone. I realized that four to five weeks ago it must have been a spiritual opportunity. It must be a moment to go inside me, to deepen my meditative practice, to deepen my self-care practices. It’s really important not to make sure I don’t overwhelm myself knowing what my limits are. Although there is Action to Call right now and I am trying to take action for what I can, even though I am emotionally frustrated, I will not be able to serve anyone. You can’t pour from an empty cup. I have to do everything I can to fill my cup. It has taught me boundaries in even more new ways because it is subtle right now. I have to prioritize being okay because I can start crying. It was with the murder of George Floyd and the black trans woman who was killed in Minneapolis that Iana Dyer was also on camera.

It seems that the death of trans men, especially trans women of color, is getting more attention than in the past.

If we can’t connect Ayana Dyer beaten by 30 plus men and women – but thank God she survived – in the same town where George Floyd was killed, if we don’t see the connection between Aina Dyer and the black life of Blackheads George Floyd’s life I don’t know what to say. I don’t know if it’s getting more attention but it needs more attention.

We’ve issued statements about the many media outlets and studios in Hollywood wanting to do better, Zamindari To do better. Is it just lip service?

I want to say yes and no. I think there has been progress. On Sundays when I tune in to “Unsafe” and Isa Roy is running his show, when I tune in to “Queen Sugar” or go to work – I was working on “Anna Discovering” in Shonda Rhymes before this coron virus hit. First show for Netflix, and I just did [“Bad Hair”] With Justin Simeone – When I think about these people and think about the “disclosure” of Netflix’s premiere, I think there’s been some cultural progress. What makes me happy is that our community, the entertainment industry, is really trying. I can see the strong effort to diversify the media in front and behind the camera. I’m trying to try and want to get better. I can see it. I see it from my position. However I am very convenient. I think it’s always important to qualify, because other people are going to talk differently. I have girlfriends who also feel trance they are still trying to keep their feet on the door.

Are you optimistic?

I Colonel West told Anderson Cooper on CNN last week that there would be problems if people didn’t start rioting after what we saw in Minneapolis. At least people have said, ‘No more!’ How do we keep that power? How do we continue this? How do we keep this energy in and out of November? How do we hold the Democratic Party accountable? How will we hold them accountable, because they are just as corporate and just as corrupt as the Republicans; Not as corrupt as the Republicans … but they need to be together for the Democratic Party. We need to change.

So, when are you running to the office?
