Personal Quote:

[on being a spokesperson for the transgender movement] Some folks, they just don't understand. And they need to get to know us as human beings. Others are just going to be opposed to us forever. But I do believe in the humanity of people and in people's capacity to love and to change.

Trivia:

Her nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series - for her performance in Orange Is the New Black (2013) - at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards makes her the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an acting award in the history of the Emmys. See more »
