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

Breaking barriers.

Laverne Cox is the first openly transgender model to appear on the cover of Cosmopolitan. The LGBT activist dons a one-piece bodysuit for the Cosmo South Africa February 2018 issue. The #SayYesToLove edition – which is also Valentine’s Day-themed – focuses on LGBTQ issues.

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.”
