About damn time!

In a well-deserved move, Laverne Cox will star on the February front page of Cosmopolitan South Africa as the magazine’s first trans covergirl. Yes!!!

In a message to readers, the 45-year-old penned for this special “Say Yes to Love” edition:

“Trans women deserve to be loved out in the open and in the light. Your voice matters, the truth of who you know yourselves to be matters. The truth will set you free!”

She also goes on to open up about her dating life, saying:

“As a black transgender woman, I’ve often been kept a secret by the men I’ve dated.”

The mag’s Editor-in-Chief Holly Meadows said of the monumental move happening in honor of Valentine’s Day:

“[We wanted to] disrupt hetero-normative ideas around February and Valentine’s Day and look at love in 2018 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ including acceptance of self, others and non-binary relationships. [Cox is] the world’s most vocal trans poster girl and an activist for the intersection of race, class and gender identities, challenging toxic masculinity, white supremacy and the misrepresentation of trans people.”
