Laverne Cox Is The First Trans Model To Grace 'Cosmopolitan's Cover

Cox is known for her 2014 Emmy nomination for her role in Orange Is the New Black. Additionally, in 2014 she was the first trans woman to appear on the cover of TIME. In a letter within her latest cover, Cox shared, “Trans women deserve to be loved out in the open and in the light.”
