Actress and activist Laverne Cox lived her relationship and subsequent breakup with Kyle Draper publicly. She shared her gratitude for having him in her life after settling for men because she thought no one else would want her.
And when the two amicably parted ways, this past June, she shared that with the fans as well, expressing gratitude for the time they spent together.
Now after the summer season, just around three months, Cox is announcing to the fellas that she’s ready to get back on the horse named dating.
In one of her signature behind-the-scenes-photo-shoot-esque Instagram posts, she reminded gentlemen out there that not only is she single, she’s accepting applications.
And the message wasn’t subtle. In the caption for the seductive video, Cox wrote:
“Single lady here. It’s ok to slide into my DM’s gentlemen. Don’t be scared. Just be respectful. Los Angeles area preferred. Talk soon. ❤❤❤🙏🤞 #TransIsBeautiful”
Given all the hatred that exists for Black trans women, it’s a risky move. Still, it’s also a brave and admirable one, asking explicitly for what you want. Don’t be surprised if in a couple of months from now, we get another love life update from Laverne about how she met her new boo after he followed her instructions and dropped her a line.
You know we’ll keep you posted.
