Transgender Actress/Activist Laverne Cox Graces the Cover of TIME Magazine

Perfect timing.

TIME magazine has sent me this awesome cover and article featuring Laverne Cox.

Laverne tells TIME
"We are in a place now where more and more trans people want to come forward and say, ‘This is who I am.’ And more trans people are willing to tell their stories. More of us are living visibly and pursuing our dreams visibly, so people can say, ‘Oh yeah, I know someone who is trans.’ When people have points of reference that are humanizing, that demystifies difference.”

Here's a video from the photo shoot

I loved the article, and I'm glad there's someone else who went through the same things I did as a kid and is highly visible.
