LAVERNE COX made television history when she became the first African American transgender woman to appear on an American reality show with her appearance as a finalist on VH1's "I Want to Work for Diddy." She accepted the GLAAD media award for Outstanding Reality Program for "I Want to Work For Diddy."

Laverne's popularity on "Work for Diddy" led to her starring in her own show on VH1 called "Transform Me" based on the original concept by Laverne and her partners at her production company Complete World Domination. "TRANSform Me" is a makeover show which explores the concept of transformation from the inside out drawing from the universal aspects of transgender transformation.

As an actress Laverne has guest starred on "Law and Order", "Law and Order: SVU", and HBO’s "Bored to Death." She recently starred in the forthcoming independent film "Uncle Stephanie." Her other film credits include "Bronx Paradise," "The Kings of Brooklyn" and "Daughter of Arabia."
