This Fall, MTV and Logo will feature a one-hour documentary exploring the experiences of trans youth, BuzzFeed can exclusively reveal. In addition to executive producing, Orange Is The New Black's Laverne Cox will be the documentary's host.

According to a spokesperson at MTV and Logo, the documentary subjects were found without the use of traditional casting methods.

Some of the youth featured in the documentary reached out to Cox themselves during her college speaking tour, while others were found through personal YouTube channels.

Although few details are known at this time, it's not too early to get excited about it.
