What an exciting moment for Laverne Cox!

On Tuesday, it was announced that Laverne will be the FIRST transgender person to be immortalized wax at the renowned Madame Tussauds in San Francisco.

The Orange Is the New Black star said of the honor:

"I am so deeply honored to have been asked to be part of the Madame Tussauds legacy. When I think about being who I am, a black trans woman from a working class background raised in Mobile, Alabama, this honor feels even more improbable and extraordinary. I hope that this will be a source of inspiration for everyone who encounters it to believe that their dreams matter and are possible."

Get it, girl! With all the spotlight on Caitlyn Jenner recently, we think it's more than fair that the actress has her moment in the sun!

Speaking of Caitlyn, it would be so cool to see her get the wax treatment one day too!!

All we can hope is that Laverne's figure isn't TERRIFYING a la Miley Cyrus… a woman as fabulous as Laverne deserves the best!

Congrats, L! We can't wait for the unveiling on June 26!
