Actress Laverne Cox says the Netflix hit comedy Orange is the New Black has helped transgender people come out.

Cox discussed the show on the red carpet of Logo TV's Thursday night Gay Pride special Trailblazers.

Trailblazers coincides with the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision striking down a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

(Related: Thursday marks one year anniversary of Supreme Court's DOMA ruling.)

Former President Bill Clinton, who signed DOMA into law, will honor Edith Windsor, who challenged the law, and Roberta Kaplan, the lawyer who represented Windsor.

Lance Bass will honor Brooklyn Nets player Jason Collins, the NBA's first openly gay player.

Also being honored is the cast of Orange is the New Black, in which Cox, a transgender woman, plays a transgender character.

“I've gone to meet people all over this country who've been deeply moved by the show. Particularly with my character, trans folks that said they've been able to come out as trans, they decided to transition because of this show, they've been able to have conversations with people in their lives about their identity in ways that are affirming because of this show,” Cox said. “So, it's really incredible to be the vessel for all of that social change.” (The video is embedded on this page.
