Laverne Cox has had an amazing year and made amazing strides for the transgender community, but the year is not yet over and she still has a couple of surprises up her sleeve.

The “Orange Is the New Black” star has teamed up with MTV and Logo for “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word,” an hour long documentary that follows the lives of transgender youth living in America. For her documentary, Laverne’s cameras followed seven people between the ages of 12 and 24 from New Orleans, New York, and Baltimore showing their trails and tribulations.

According to MTV, Cox will walk, “viewers through the difficulties of coming out, how race plays into the equation, bullying, violence and familial and social support.” An hour-long “Trans Forum,” hosted by Cox and SuChin Pak will follow the documentary in which audience members and the social media community can ask questions. This is all part of MTV’s “Look Different” campaign, an initiative to identify and fight biases, misconceptions, and break down barriers.

“Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word” premiere on October 17th at 7 p.m. ET.
