A figurative and literal step forward as transgender actress Laverne Cox is featured this week on the cover of Time Magazine.
Think Progress reports:
Time Magazine has declared that society has reached a “transgender tipping point,” offering up a new feature that includes an extensive “Transgender 101″ article covering the gamut of issues affecting the trans community, a photo essay of transgender individuals, and a personal interview with Laverne Cox, the openly trans actress who stars in Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black. The cover story and its other components comprise what is perhaps the most positive and in-depth representation of transgender life experiences ever presented in mainstream print media.
Kudos to Time Magazine for shining a spotlight on this great actress and activist, and on transgender rights issues in general.
