  • Here’s the LGBTQ Supreme Court Case Laverne Cox Brought Up on the Emmys Red Carpet

    Laverne Cox used her time on the 2019 Emmys red carpet Sunday to inform viewers about an upcoming Supreme Court case that could make it legal to fire someone from their job for being LGBTQ.The “Orange Is the New Black” alum brought ACLU staff attorney Chase Strangio as her guest to TV’s biggest night, and the two told Giuliana Rancic, who was hosting E!’s preshow coverage, about the SCOTUS case, which is being heard Oct. 8. Strangio wore a tuxedo, but in place of a bowtie was a badge that said “TRANS.”“Everyone should be aware that the administration is asking the Supreme Court to make it legal to fire workers just because they’re LGBTQ,” Strangio said. “And this is actually going to transform the lives of LGBTQ people, and people who are not LGBTQ. Anyone who departs from sex stereotypes, like all the fabulous people here, for example. So we really need to show up on October 8 and pay attention because our lives are on the line”Also Read: Emmy Nominees 2019: The Complete List“So we want everyone to tell their friends and families about this case,” Cox said. “RiseUpOctober8.
