MTV and Logo TV on Thursday released a trailer for the upcoming documentary Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word.

The 1-hour documentary is hosted and produced by Laverne Cox, the actress (Orange is the New Black) and transgender advocate.

“We'll follow the courageous lives of young trans people. From the moment of realization to dating, family and the often dangerous obstacles they faced on the path to self -discovery,” Cox says in the 30-second clip. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Seven transgender youth from across the country are featured in the film, which will simultaneously premiere on MTV and Logo TV on October 17 to coincide with Spirit Day, which takes place on October 16.

Cox and MTV News correspondent SuChin Park will host an hour-long Trans Forum to be broadcast immediately following the documentary's premiere.
