A: What was it like when you finally got to talk to Laverne? M: It was real exciting; I was the first one to get a hug from her. I was the only one because she wasn’t going to hug people because she didn’t want to get sick, but I was like, ‘Laverne, I love you!’ and she was just like, ‘How could I say no, you’re so cute!’ And then she hugged me! And it was really, really super really great!...I can relate to her because she’s transgender and I like to relate to people who are like me. It feels good to know there are other people like me in the world. An interview with M. and Marlo [previously] on Amy Poehler's Smartgirls blog. Marlo's gendermom blog post and podcast on the day her 7-year-old trans daughter met Orange is the New Black's Laverne Cox.
