Did You Know? Laverne Cox Is Making History!

“Laverne Cox appeared on the cover of the June 9, 2014, issue of Time magazine, and was interviewed for the article “The Transgender Tipping Point” by Katy Steinmetz. This makes Cox the first openly transgender person to appear on the cover of Time in the magazine’s history.

Cox’s nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series – for her performance in Orange Is the New Black (2013) – at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards makes her the first openly transgender person to be nominated for any award in the history of the Emmys.
