[ # ] Laverne Cox pulls out of Sell/Buy/Date
January 7th, 2021 under Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox signed on to produce Tony-winner Sarah Jones’ play Sell/Buy/Date as a documentary. However, after several people confronted her about the project, she opted to walk away from it.

“When I agreed to come on as an executive producer of ‘Sell, Buy Date,’ I did so because I was so deeply moved by Sarah Jones’ brilliant play and her unbelievable, undeniable talent as an artist, as an actor. I signed on to support her incredible talent. I have so much love for her as a human being,” Cox wrote. “But I am not in an emotional place to deal with the outrage by some around my participation in this project. So I have decided to pull out. To be clear I am no longer involved in any capacity in “Sell. Buy, Date.” I have to take care of my mental, physical and emotional health. This is all I have to say on the matter. Stay in the love, Laverne Cox.”

Cox did not elaborate on what the outrage is over her doing the project. Sell/Buy/Date tells the story of real-life experiences of people affected by the commercial sex industry through interviews with current and former sex workers, experts, and celebrities.
