We’ve got your friday night plans on lock: MTV and LogoTV are simultaneously premiering Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word. The hour-long special, which is part of MTV’s Look Different campaign, follows seven transgender youths between the ages of 12 and 24, and the joys and struggles that they each experience. The film addresses issues that are of universal interest to teenagers (friends, parents, sex, and life after high school) as well as those unique to trans youth, such as disclosure of one’s trans status while dating, facing an increased risk of homelessness or violence, and, in particular for trans women of color, being profiled by police.
Tune in at 7/6c to catch this transparent look at an important subject, and hear songs from some of your favorite MTV artists, including: Magic Man, FMLYBND, Young Liars, We The Committee and more– check it out in the spotify playlist below! Stick around after the show for an hour long special with Laverne Cox and the cast, live on LogotTV and mtv.com.
