The Laverne Cox Show

The Laverne Cox Show

Years ago, a therapist said in our very first session that there are only two things that we can truly control in our lives - our own perception and our own behavior. That's it. Nothing more than that. Each week, The Laverne Cox Show will feature intimate conversations with folks who help me to see and think differently so that maybe I can act differently. It is my hope that this becomes a place that fosters perspectives that might inspire new behavior in each of us, which in turn gets us closer to becoming the very best versions of ourselves. Let's have a spiritual makeover together.

Actually she says hell, yes. The way a person is perceived in the world affects everything from job security to healthcare, which means there are real consequences for anyone brave enough to push back and opt out of the high heels, slink...
