‘Orange is the New Black’ Star Laverne Cox Meets Caitlyn Jenner for First Time
Transgender activists Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox have been in communication since Caitlyn’s fabulous coming out cover, but the pair finally met in person for the first time this week.
In a picture posted to Laverne’s Instagram account, we see she and Caitlyn posing together, looking friendly. Laverne posted the photo with the caption, “@caitlynjenner and I finally met in person at a special private advance screening of #IAmCait. #TransIsBeautiful #girlslikeus #caitlynjenner”
Laverne previously reached out to Caitlyn via penning an open letter, shortly after her Vanity Fair article made its debut. “…I am so moved by all the love and support Caitlyn is receiving. It feels like a new day, indeed, when a trans person can present her authentic self to the world for the first time and be celebrated for it so universally. Many have commented on how gorgeous Caitlyn looks in her photos, how she is “slaying for the Gods.” I must echo these comments in the vernacular, “Yasss Gawd! Werk Caitlyn! Get it!”… Yes, Caitlyn looks amazing and is beautiful but what I think is most beautiful about her is her heart and soul, the ways she has allowed the world into her vulnerabilities.”
We’re glad these two inspirations finally got the chance to meet in person!
