Orange is the New Black Cast Celebrate Pride in New York, San Francisco and at the White House

1 Jul

The Orange is the New Black cast were out in full force on Sunday with floats at Pride parades in New York City and San Francisco. Laverne Cox was one of three grand marshals (Looking’s Jonathan Groff and Rea Carney were the other two) and she rode alongside Delores Nettles (her daughter Islan Nettles, a transgender woman was beaten to death last year).

Cox also visited the White House yesterday for their Pride reception and Michelle Obama is a big fan of the show as Cox revealed on Instagram “At the White House Pride luncheon earlier today. I met the President and First Lady. She hugged me and is a fan of @oitnb #oitnb #starstruck and #inspired.”
