Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox has been honoured with the Inspiration Award at The Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards, powered by Jaguar.

The American actress and LGBT+ advocate, who became the first transgender actress to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in an acting category in 2015, was presented with her award by British singer Sam Smith at the star-studded event at London’s Roundhouse on Thursday night (October 12)
