While Laverne Cox may have paved the way for significant changes in the LGBTQ community and the world at large, she is now riding the wave caused by fellow transgender celebrity Caitlyn Jenner. The slew of positivity surrounding the specific issue of transgender individuals is refreshing and even has elevated Laverne Cox to historical stature as she channels her inner Statue of Liberty for the cover of Entertainment Weekly's LGBT Special Edition.
Of course, in addition to the support surrounding gender identity and sexuality, Laverne Cox is promoting the newest season of 'Orange is the New Black.' Excitingly released early on Netflix, the show has championed her causes in an equally admirable way. In the interview, Laverne Cox talks about the show, the Caitlyn Jenner phenomenon and a feeling of acceptance.
