Orange is the New Black star and transgender spokeswoman Laverne Cox is hoping to make a splash with her new documentary special “The T Word” this fall.
Following the lives of young transgender people around the country, “The T Word” aims to look deep into the issues these kids face as they transition, and realize who they really are.
“The T Word”will air on MTV and Logo October 17 and 7 p.m. ET.
Details via MTV:

Viewers will meet Kye, a Brooklyn man who was the first transgender Division I basketball player ever, as well as college freshman Ari, an 18-year-old man taking his first steps into campus life. Zoey, a 12-year-old navigating life at her new school in California after school administrators refused to acknowledge her as a girl, is also featured, among other true life stories.

After the documentary’s premiere, Logo and MTV.com will host an hour-long “Trans Forum,” hosted by Cox and SuChin Pak. Alongside the subjects of the documentary, Cox will field questions from audience members and those tuning in via social media.
