By Posted on 0 1 m read

Laverne Cox has been talking the talk and walking the walk for years. In 2014, Cox became the first openly transgender person to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in an acting category for her role as Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black. She then went on to becoming the first openly transgender woman to win a Daytime Emmy as an Executive Producer of the documentary The T Word. Fast forward to today and Cox is making history once again as the first openly trans women to ever cover Cosmopolitan magazine! Yas!

Cox is featured on the valentines day February issue “Say Yes To Love” edition of Cosmopolitan South Africa. This issue focused on the LGBTQI+ community and love of self-others, and non-binary relationships.
