It’s T- 48 hours until the CBS legal drama Doubt graces our televisions screens and we get to witness Laverne Cox in her role as attorney Cameron Wirth on the show.
But before that happens on February 15, Laverne took the Grammy stage to introduce Lady Gaga and Metallica. While doing so she urged the audience during that time on stage to “Google Gavin Grimm”.
What she was referring to was the upcoming March 29 SCOTUS case that has the potential depending how the eight current justices rule to be a watershed case moving trans human rights forward or be our Dred Scott.
It looks like people heard her and responded, since inquiries about the case spiked after she did so.
Laverne also got to finally meet my Houston homegirl at the Grammy (who was robbed for Album of the Year, BTW). Glad I was asleep because I would have been even more pissed had I witnessed that.
And Grammy voters, you know you’re getting a Shut Up Fool ward nomination for the travesty of a Black female artist not winning the Album of the year Grammy since 1999 and only three Black women in Grammy history ever doing so.
This pic of Trace and Laverne at the Grammy’s is also meme worthy, and thank you ladies for doing what you do to ensure that our voices are heard in Hollywood.
Hollywood is just as important to advancing the trans rights cause as Washington DC is, and thanks Laverne and Trans Hollywood for not only doing i well, but looking fab while doing so.
Looking forward to seeing that debut episode of Doubt Wednesday night. .
