For the past couple of years, Laverne Cox has been the most talked about transgender celebrity of our time, leading a growing number of trans celebrities as they transformed the face of mainstream America and blazed a path for Caitlyn Jenner to have her historic coming out moment this year. And although both Cox and Jenner have spoken highly of each other for months, they’d never met until this past week, which Cox documented on her Instagram page.
According to Cox, she and Jenner finally met after Jenner invited her to a special private screening of her upcoming E! docuseries, “I Am Cait,” which will follow her life after coming out as a trans woman.
“[email protected] and I finally met in person at a special private advance screening of #IAmCait. #TransIsBeautiful #girlslikeus #caitlynjenner,” Cox captioned the photo.
Cox also shared another photo from the screening, showing that a bevy of other transgender women were watching “I Am Cait” with her, including Jenner’s friend, trans actress Candis Cayne.
“Fun with #girlslikeus tonight at the screening of #IAmCait @tracelysette @candiscayne @smartassjen @zackarydrucker #MimiMarks #TransIsBeautiful,” she captioned the photo.
We’re glad that these two women have finally met and that they’re being so supportive of each other.
