Her work as an advocate in the transgender community has been a tribute by GLAAD in 2014. Her organization was passionately spoken out for encouraging fair representation of LGBT community in the media and Hollywood.

"Their work is really, really vital. I believe when we can change the hearts and minds of people about marginalized folks then that can begin to move public policy," Cox said prior to the show. "I think the way over the past several years we've had an unprecedented amount of transgender visibility and look at what has happened this week. The Attorney General of the United States has come out ferociously for transgender rights. The Obama Administration [is] also for the rights of trans students. It's really incredible."
