Before we even get started, let's just point out that Laverne Cox is fierce, powerful, ,and a total bad***!
Not only is she a star in Orange is the New Black, but she's an LGBT rights activist! She's been making history left and right, becoming the first transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy Award (since 1990) and a Primetime Emmy Award in the acting category.
And now, she's making history again! She is now the first transgender woman to grace the cover of Cosmopolitan South Africa!
I am so honored and proud to cover the February issue of @cosmopolitansa @Regranned from @cosmopolitansa - Say WHAT? #SayYesToLove 🏳️🌈 And this month's issue is filled with it! 💖 In this South Africa exclusive @lavernecox stars as COSMO's first ever openly trans cover girl! Ain't I a woman? Yes you are and we 💞 you. ALSO, #LGBTQI+ allies and activists on Love in 2018 💝 You don't want to miss this one! #COSMOxLaverne #COSMOFebruary #TransIsBeautiful ⭐️ click on the link in my bio to get your copy of this very special issue.
All I can say is YAS QUEEN! I'm so happy to see transgender people FINALLY getting some recognition. Never, ever be afraid to be who you are.
