“What’s interesting about Sophia’s storyline,” Cox says, “is that, usually when we see trans people on screen their stories are all about their transition, but this is a health care issue. And just because you’re in prison doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have health care.” Cox says Sophia’s relationship with her wife and son is what she finds most fascinating, and that the topic will be explored more in the show’s second season, which airs this June.
I wouldn’t be the first person to point to the irony in a show about a women’s prison becoming a critical darling in large part due the diversity of female characters and stories it examines. Cox says it isn’t a coincidence. “Everything about the prison-industrial complex is designed to dehumanize the women who are incarcerated. So, it means so much to me that our show is about doing the exact opposite.” (x)
