Another day, another historic trans first for Laverne Cox.
Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in San Francisco announced that in honor of Pride Month, she would become the first transperson ever turned into a wax figure.
Her wax figure will join those of George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio on display at Madame Tussauds San Francisco in Fisherman’s Wharf and debut during the San Francisco Pride press conference on June 26.
Is Laverne excited about it? Yes.
“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,” said Cox in a statement. “I hope that
this will be a source of inspiration for every one who encounters it to
believe that their dreams matter and are possible.”.
And so do I Laverne. Congrats on another groundbreaking honor.
