I’ll be up-front: A former editor of mine recently nicknamed me “one-trick pony” for my repeated coverage of the indie rock band Hippo Campus.
A part of me would like to take the standard journalistic approach to the interview with Laverne Cox, but how can I construct something so feeble from a woman who exudes a presence of light and hope?
