TIME may have left her off their 100 Most Influential People list but they’re righting their wrong this month by finally shining their spotlight on the drop-dead gorgeous Laverne Cox!

The Orange Is The New Black star is gracing the mag’s cover, becoming the FIRST trans person to ever have that honor!

Well, it’s about TIME!

The actress is featured in their new report titled The Transgender Tipping Point, which examines the rise in awareness of trans Americans and how gender status and definitions have changed and been reshaped.

Cox is quoted in the piece, saying:

"We are in a place now where more and more trans people want to come forward and say, ‘This is who I am.’ And more trans people are willing to tell their stories. More of us are living visibly and pursuing our dreams visibly, so people can say, ‘Oh yeah, I know someone who is trans.’ When people have points of reference that are humanizing, that demystifies difference.”

And when people have someone like you to look up to, Ms. Cox, the world is surely a better place!

You’re an inspiration!

Congratz on your cover!

    That's disgusting. Freaks belong in mental institutions, not glorified by the liberal media.

    Flipping the radio dial & heard Limbaugh talking about transgender people. Wondered what the fuss was about, now I know. If Rush thinks it's wrong than she must be alright.

    I think she is amazing!!! As someone who has a parent who is transgender, I applaud Laverne and her tireless activism on behalf of the trans community. So often in LGBTQ groups, the T is left by the wayside, mostly because people don't understand what it's like to be transgender. But because of brave women like Laverne, the world is enlightened and I love her to death for it :)

    Re: karen – it was hilarious Rush was being "educated" in trannyism the he/she/it was telling Rush how most fear falling in love with the tranny therefore we're scared. lmao
