Laverne Cox Is On The Cover Of Time Magazine

Today is Laverne Cox’s birthday, so what could be better than being on the cover of Time magazine? “The Transgender Tipping Point: America’s next civil rights frontier” is Time’s cover story.

“Nearly a year after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage, another social movement is poised to challenge deeply held cultural beliefs,” the story’s subhead reads. “Laverne Cox has gone from being bullied for acting feminine as a kid in Mobile, Ala., to starring in Orange Is the New Black and becoming a public face for the transgender movement.”

Cox posted the cover and a note to her Facebook page:

Congratulations Laverne, and happy birthday!

I am so Happy, Proud, Amazed and grateful to Time! Miss Laverne is a hero for so many. Beauty, brains and talent wrapped up in a hard working women who doesn't shy away from a challenge. Life is a challenge every moment of the day for our transgender family. It doesn't have to be. With people like her sharing the truth and pain, life won't have to be so hard for the next generation.
