Happy Birthday, Laverne Cox! Take A Look At Her Best Red Carpet Looks
Laverne Cox is a force to be reckoned with. The actress and advocate has used her celebrity status to fight for the rights of the trans community as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+. Her voice has encouraged thousands of young trans kids, teenagers, and adults to keep going despite the kickback from the rest of the world. Within the last few weeks, 3 members of the trans community were murdered. As we mourn their loss, we recognize the importance of the advocacy work being done on the behalf all people.

"Finding ways to get out of unhealthy relationships is crucial. I know for me I stayed in unhealthy relationships for years because I didn't think anyone else would love me because I'm black and I'm trans. And that is not true. I'm lovable and worthy of a healthy relationship. We all are." Rest in Power #MercedesWilliamson … Thanks @westanlavernecox for posting this. I had not seen it before. … #TransIsBeautiful #love
