Orange Is the New Black star and and outspoken transgender activist Laverne Cox will host a new one-hour documentary special Trans Teen: The Documentary, which will simulcast on MTV and Logo this fall.

Following four trans youths in the U.S. who range from ages 14 to 24, Trans Teen explores the complexities of dealing with family acceptance (or lack thereof), bullying, and intolerance – as the four subjects work to come to terms with their own identities as transgender Americans.

Cox also serves as executive producer alongside Marshall Eisen, Betsy Forhan, Cheryl Horner Sirulnick, Michael Hirschorn, and Eric Miclette.
