Spirit_Day_2013_FB_squareLaverne Cox, a transgender advocate and actress on the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black, will speak at the 4th Annual “Spirit Day Rally and Candle Light Vigil” at the College of Charleston’s Physicians Auditorium on October 17th. Cox will also appear at a VIP After Party later that night.

The rally, which is hosted by We Are Family, is free and open to the public. Attendees are asked to wear purple to stand against bullying and show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.

Cox, who grew up as a transgender youth in the South, will meet with students from 5 pm until the beginning of the rally at 6 pm. The rally will include a live performance from Megan Jean and the KFB and speeches.

The post-rally VIP party and fundraiser with Cox will be held at the Michael Mitchell Gallery from 8 pm until 10 pm. Tickets are $100 per person. For more information on the party, click here.

We Are Family hosts a group for LGBT and straight ally youth every Tuesday night from 7 pm until 8:30 pm at the Meeting House in the Circular Congregational Church. For further information, click here. For more information on Spirit Day, click here.
