Friday April 9th

Laverne Cox to speak at Indiana University virtual event

Cox's appearance will include a brief presentation and a moderated Q&A featuring questions from the audience. She is widely known for her role portraying Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black but is also celebrated for her work as an LGBTQ+-rights advocate. Cox was the first trans woman of color to have a leading role on a mainstream, scripted television show. She's also an Emmy-winning documentary film producer. Her critically acclaimed documentary Disclosure, which details the history of trans representation in Hollywood, is streaming on Netflix. "An Evening with Laverne Cox" and the symposium are presented by Platform: An Arts and Humanities Research Laboratory at IU Bloomington. The symposium will take place virtually April 9-10. The event with Cox is free and open to the public. People must register to attend the virtual event ahead of time. Visit
