It;s time for another TransGriot birthday shoutout, and today’s recipient of it is my amazing sis Laverne Cox, who was born on this date in Mobile, Alabama along with her twin brother Lamar.
I have much love and respect for her, and I forgot to ask her the last time I talked to her who is the eldest sibling.
She continues to make history. In addition to her role on Orange Is The New Black, she will get to play an Ivy League lawyer on a upcoming CBS legal series called Doubt that I’m looking forward to the premiere of.
Laverne also continues to be a lovely and thoughtful ambassador for our community as she travels the country speaking at various events and colleges.
Happy birthday Laverne! May you continue to have much success with your acting career and get the roles that are not only challenging for you but expand opportunities for other trans actors following in your footsteps.
May your birthday be filled with abundant blessings, and you be granted the time to celebrate many more of them.
