Actor, LGBT advocate and television producer Laverne Cox has quite the resume. We are excited she has made the top of the Feminist Celebrity nomination list for the second year in a row!
Cox is the first transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy when she was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on the Netflix hit Orange is the New Black. She also made history as the first transgender figure to have a wax figure in Madame Tussauds and land on the cover of TIME. Beautiful, talented and witty, Cox has spoken proudly and and consistently about the complex issues the transgender community faces on a daily basis and how it directly relates to feminism.
