Ready to fire up your Saturday night? Then you've got to watch Laverne Cox's opening speech at the Creating Change conference organized by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Punctuated by applause throughout, the Orange Is The New Black star discusses her journey, the hardships of growing up different, what it feels like to be a trans woman and the struggle of trans people in America. More than anything, Cox talks about hope, resources, and the change that needs to happen for greater understanding and acceptance in the LGBTQQI community as well as the necessity for all of us to love and respect ourselves.
